Hi Daffnetters,
Graeme Phillips  , growing in the Waikato , N Z , is a very successful daff breeder, and like myself a commercial
cut flower grower.He is on a bigger scale than I , a big player in the Auckland and Hamilton markets.
 
Early flowers usually commander better prices and Graeme has raised some exceptional early pinks.
This is my favourite, just comming into bloom.
 
Gee  Pink  —  a large flower on a tall , strong stem, opens well from bud and for me usually the first pink.
It is also proving a good parent for G P , giving some early all  whites and also strong stems on early doubles.
 
John.
