*CORTINA (Stamile, P.) TET 816-B (Victorian
Lace X Key Lime Ice) 23 EMRe. fr. emo. Ev. 6 x 3 ½ x 2.
3 way branching. 18-24 buds. This beautiful smooth heavy white with a distinct
gold edge is one of my finest whites to date. While CORTINA, named
for the famed ski area of Italy, is not a pure white but a near white with
glistening overtones of green and pale yellow. The edge is a bright waxy
green yellow. The flower often shows folds and shows super sculpting as
shown in the photograph but typically is a more formal flat, round form..
CORTINA is one of our most important pod parents for whites and should
be an invaluable tool for those looking to breed green. What is happening
to the whites is truly amazing and CORTINA is in the beginning of this
fabulous revolution in edged whites. Fertile both ways.
