That's a cute flower form and color.  I wouldn't have suspected the parents!  It looks a little like viticella 'Chatsworth'.

Yes, I hoped or a small flowering, size viticella, plant with white flowers. The flowers does not have no more the green tips and they have a soft color.

Ton, what were you hoping for?  Probably a vigorous, free flowering white, but with bigger flowers?

The green tips of the half formed sepals will be found several times at cultivars of viticella and campaniflora.

Hi Ton,
 
Very interesting cross - thank you for showing it to us.
Are the green tips of the half formed sepals a common feature?

Three years ago I have made several crossings with a white LFH x campaniflora.
Now I have my first crossing with flowers and the results are not as I hoped.
