(Cherry Berry X Eloquent Silence)
I bloomed any number of seedlings aiming for a dormant, eyed, near white. I wanted one that was reliable in zone 4 and bigger than most of the Tet Siloam Virginia Henson offspring. There were several that filled the bill, but this one was by far the best. Bud count at 15 wasn't as good as some of the others, but plant proportion was superb, the gold edge on the blossom was consistent, and the color was clear as a bell. With 3-4 way branching, and excellent vigor, I highly recommend this for the northern garden.
