ICE CREAM EMPEROR (Dan Trimmer) Tetraploid (Isle Of  Man x Tetra Evelyn Gates) 25” EM Re. Ev. 5 ½” For years I’ve tried to produce near whites worthy of introduction but without success. From a cross of two seeds involving TETRA EVELYN GATES I’ve gotten lucky having produced an extremely circular tightly ruffled bloom that is almost always perfect from first bloom to last. Although a difficult pod parent for me, I believe ICE CREAM EMPEROR opens the door to more graceful, diploid looking near white tetraploids with excellent vigor, compact plant habit, and increase.
