CUTIE (Kollasch’12) (143) 65 days (Whisker’s seedling X Snowflake) 

We are thrilled to have our first introduction from Dave Kollasch. Dave has developed some great miniatures over the last six years. His 100 size introductions are his specialty. I think Cutie is his finest 100 size he has introduced, I rated it over 95 in the All-American trial garden. Cutie is a very pretty medium pink on the outer petals that blends into a creamy white throat blotch. Opens 7-8 lightly ruffled florets in good placement with 20 buds on a 22-23” flowerhead. A must have for the miniature lovers.

L or M $3.00 

 

 

 

 

CRAZY EIGHT (Hartline ’12) (211) 80 days (Cool White X Boy O’ Boy) 

Crazy Eight is aptly named, it has 8 petals instead of the normal 6. Still has the normal three part of stigma and three stamens, not petaloids. A heavy ruffled cream with light yellow lip petals. Opens 8 heavy substanced florets with 22 buds on a 25” flowerhead. This one could become a very valuable tool for hybridizers. L or M $3.50
