  • Lovely waviness along the falls
  • For many years an elusive goal was to create a white Reticulata. In the 1970s William van Eeden came up with the pale blue Natascha; in a sense a poor man's white. We now have the beautiful White Caucasus. Does it make sense to introduce a pale blue? I think the truth is this is a lovely Reticulata, and especially so because of its wavy form.
  • Similar to, but not the same as, 99-VR-2
