I think this is the one that has been thought to perhaps be a sport of 'Edina'?
Anyway, it might be fun to see what would happen if crossed with other diploid flatties such as 'Clematis', 'Rhythm', 'Little Freak', and some that are trying to be such as 'Loreley'.  It would be interesting to see if it is inheritable, and what results from crossing two diploid flatties.

This is Fran's Flattie, a flat blooming non registered
cultivar that's being passed around. I think this
might be a diploid but can't be sure. Some of the
standard petals don't turn into falls completely,
meaning if they are laying flat they have beards.
Surprisingly for a small plant with branching that's
nothing spectacular, it has an average bud count of 9.
It also has pollen so I have been putting it on a
couple of my diploids.
