Clades sizePhylloclades formReferenceComments
SRL Teamthe USA versions of Nicole and White Nicole have narrow phylloclades with 3 forward facing dentations per marginal side and shallow notching. The original de Vries' Nicole has phylloclades that appear wider with undulating edges, carrying 2 forward facing dentations per side and shallow notching. The Netherland original's petals are elliptical, while the American version are more lanceolate. It is possible that the USA cultivar originated as a sport. Cross fertilization between the two versions would confirm if they are genetically the same or separate cultivars.
