Product ID: 3674

Early maturing purple annual.

Colorado Star was specifically bred for annual production from seed. Very early maturing. The 1-3' tall plants vary from upright to prostrate, but all produce high yields of purple to greenish-purple buds. Typically 1-3 primary buds are produced that are 2 1/2-3 1/2" in diameter followed by 5-7 secondary buds ranging from 2-2 1/2" diameter. Developed by Keith Mayberry, who also bred Imperial Star. Plants are spiny. Perennial in Zone 7 and warmer, otherwise treat as an annual. NOTE: Amount of purpling may vary from plant to plant; some buds will be all purple, while others only show purple-tinged bracts. Avg. 9,600 seeds/lb. Packet: 25 seeds.
