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.

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

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

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

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.

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