Altman Specialty Plants August 11, 2010

Altman Specialty Plants' ‘Dulce Rosa’ is the first commercially available poinsettia interspecific hybrid. Until now, the increasingly phenomenal array of colors and shapes in poinsettias have all been derived from one species, Euphorbia pulcherrima. Attempting to bring the pure white color into poinsettia genetics, the poinsettia from Mexico was crossed with another species, Euphorbia retusa, from Africa. The resulting interspecific hybrid was ‘Dulce Rosa’, a vigorous landscape plant that withstands the rigors of the garden. The almost fluorescent pink bracts make this exciting introduction the first in line of what is sure to become a series of poinsettias that will function well in the landscape.
