This pure white cultivar, an ADS Classic, is both seed and pollen fertile. English breeder Frederick Board utilized this cultivar often as a seed parent (5 times), and as pollen parent (twice) in 1956. Cultivars resultant therefrom may be viewed at http://daffseek.org/query/Desc... (DaffSeek 11-6-13).
