Etna Probably the best red cultivar and very popular. Very floriferous early flowering which can be depended upon to give a good display every year. Increases well.

Fanal Very popular red flowered cultivar producing many flowers every year. Should be grown in every garden.
Fata Morgana A good deep red flower although stems are not particularly strong so flowers can bend easily. There are better red coloured cultivars.
Federsee One of the best Arendsii hybrids. Excellent for garden use and may also be forced. Available in nurseries in U.K. and in Europe. Has been sold at one time as Catherine Deneuve.
Feuer (Fire) A popular red cultivar which flowers freely and grows well. Often produces a sport of deeper red colour named Glut (Glow) so both coloured forms can be on the same plant.
Fireberry Good low growing cultivar with dense flower spikes. Should make a good garden plant and possibly good for the pot plant market as it has a compact habit.
Flamingo Spectacular panicles of flower making a good compact plant. Not too vigorous so is never going to be a widely grown plant
