This sport of Daleko Jupiter has been around since 1992 and still has the strength and vigour of the Jupiters as they were first seen. Coral Jupiter grows easily to 1.5m with well formed dinner plate sized flowers. A “wow” variety and a reliable one for the show bench. For the largest flowers plants should ideally be “stopped” at 3-4 pairs of leaves and the subsequent side shoots reduced to 3 or 4. Ensure plants are well staked and tied in. For general garden use plants can be left undisbudded for an even more stunning display but make sure you carry out regular dead heading.
