Have attached a couple of this seasons new seedlings.  34-02 came from five generations of our breeding.  Some of its ancestors are  Easter Moon, Glendermott, Kotuku,  Culmination, Drumboe, Vahu and Quasar.
The white trumpet has a heavilly frilled edge.  The frill resembles small flowers around the edge of the trumpet.  This is the best that we have developed to date since we started breeding this type of flower in the early 1970’s.

    I just love the frill!!!!!  Is it a doubling or just a rolled cup rim that is partially split?
