| Hybridizer's comment: I found it! At last I've found it! It is the picture of my seedling 91196A: (8864B: (( 'Navy Waves' x 'Bride's Halo') x sib) x C. Palmer aphylla seedling). It is the most important part of the pollen parent of Dolce. I knew the picture existed among my boxes of slides and after sorting and sorting and sorting through them it has come out of hiding. You can see the close resemblance to Dolce only in white. It is 8864B: (8565A: (Navy Waves x Bride's Halo) x 8565C: (Navy Waves x Bride's Halo)) X Cleo Palmer aphylla seedling, dirty olive cream. Bride's Halo as well as Northern Jewel account for the gold rims coming from Dolce. Navy Waves also had hints of crystalline edges. You can see the picture there so you will know where this craziness for small flowered TBs started.
