Im looking for the name of your best white. By best white I mean the one with the most buds, tallest scapes and highest bud count. It does not have to be the prettiest, or the newest. I need it for some of my patterned seedlings that need a little color clarification. I prefer one that is not a heavy recurler.
Im mainly looking for a tet., but another nice dip. white would not hurt my feelings.

The best white I have ever worked with was known for years around here as "Dottie's White Breeder" -- later named by Dottie "Frozen Mert" - it is the parent of Gossard's Heavenly Angel Ice. It is a dip.

I don't care much for white flowers, of any kind, not daisies, peonies, roses etc.

So, I can't help much. Sorry... But, Frozen Mert is a good one!

Are you looking for a spider type or a round bagel type?

I like President Ronald Reagan as a good near white. It sets pods and its pollen is fertile.
