(STARTLE x Tetra SPINDAZZLE) Tet 7-8” Dor 36” MLa (James Gossard 2001)
Awarded Honorable Mention in 2005 by the AHS
HEAVENLY BEGINNINGS is an 8” flower with a huge yellow edge, sometimes approaching one inch. It is an exceptional northern parent producing radical round and exotic edged kids with great bud count, branching and plant habit. Dose not rely on heat to increase the edge. A must have for Northern Hybridizers. Parent of my most heavy edged reds, yellows and purples. Fertile…$25.00 (Double Fans)
