Early-maturing, purple annual. Colorado Star was specifically bred for
annual production from seed. Very early maturing compared to other
purple varieties as well as green varieties. The 1-3' tall plants vary
from upright to prostrate, but all produce high yields of purple to
green-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 1
1/2-2 1/2" diameter. Developed by Keith Mayberry - the same breeder of
Imperial Star. 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. Ready to harvest in about 86 days.
