    It looks like a Mueller cross....other than that ?? It's very pretty....maybe you can make a cute name up for it.

    Beautiful! Maybe Gerberara Snow Ballet? Is the spike tall, and bloom color changes to pure white after 2 weeks?

    The color change factor is common among Bl Richard Mueller crosses. Gerberara Snow Ballet is a cross between Dial. Snow Flake and Bl Richard Mueller. Mine is spiking, I hope it blooms soon.
