Two photos of V07-16-15 which is a Miniature 6W-W that measures a petite 32mm length from corona mouth to perianth tip. It is a cross of: [(Mitzy x Sprite) x (CC4/94 x Camborne)]. CC4/94 is a Colin Crotty Miniature seedling that looks like a white species N. cyclamineus but is about 15% – 20% larger. The flower in the photo is very white and has improved substance along with a smooth, silky texture.

    Steve –

    This is a lovely, little, clean, white beauty!

    Hope it’s a good, fast grower.

    This is one of the most appealing mini cyclamineus seedlings I’ve seen. What grace it has!

  3. Bob and Linda,

    Thanks a lot! I too think this has grace and a “presence” for such a small Miniature. To me the clean, clear whiteness and decent substance make this a real standout. An exciting “building block” for future crosses that can benefit from its important attributes. The pollen will be mostly used on Miniature and Intermediate pinks this season.
