this is a unique double flowered white. Single flowers also occur on the same plant. These are strikingly similar to 'Swan Lake' flowers.

SRL Teamfirst appeared in Germany. Phylloclades are dark green and broad in width. Pollination experiments performed by Ruud Tropper (2021) using "Branca Dobrada' with 'Swan Lake' both ways in the trial resulted in no formation of pods. It appears the two are incompatible, possibly a self-incompatibility. If so, this could indicate 'Branca Dobrada' is a double flowered sport of 'Swan Lake". Both cultivars have proven fertile in crosses with other cultivars.
