Ace Up My Sleeve (Huben 2010) 22 E Re 4, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip

MH0067D = (Early And Often * Sunshine On Clouds)
Price: $25 DF

Description

I knew from the first rebloom that this northern continuous rebloomer would be an introduction. It was my first near-white continuous rebloomer. Then I knew that I would never introduce it, because it increased extremely slowly in my yard. After three years, I had three fans. I sent one to Mike Derrow, and it increased like crazy under his more southern care, enough that I can now introduce it anyhow.

And this is one that you want if you breed rebloomers. It throws great kids: all of my near-white rebloomers are kids of Ace Up My Sleeve. It can throw size, wide petals, whiteness, green throats, and rapid increase. It only has 9 buds per scape, but routinely throws three sets of scapes for me with the bonus that all the sets of scapes are the same height. And it is very fertile, setting big pods with lots of seed. In its own right, Ace Up My Sleeve is quite pretty. It blooms about 2 weeks after Stella De Oro.

This is not a plant for gardens as miserable as mine, unless you need it for breeding. In gardens with better conditions, it should be quite good. For breeding, it is one of a kind.

    • But I Repeat Myself But I Repeat Myself (Huben 2015) 30 E Re 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip Ext
      (Boston Marathon * Ace Up My Sleeve)
      A very white northern continuous rebloomer with wide sepals and 4 branches with 15 buds. A very important parent! Throws very good branching and whiteness.
    • Frozen Frozen (Huben 2015) 30 EE 4.25, Cream Blend, Dor Dip Ext
      (Many Melon Moons * Ace Up My Sleeve)
      When you have that desperate need for your daylilies to start blooming, and Stella De Oro just doesn't satisfy, here is what you need. A round, ruffled heavily diamond dusted, light cream blend with melon and a small green throat. Great form, 6 branches and 39 buds, starts with Stella De Oro and blooms at least 4 weeks.
      • MH1023B MH1023B (Huben ) ? EE 4, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
        (Frozen * Chill)
        A breakthrough in near white extra earlies!

        (Frozen * LRCJO)
        A much lighter yellow than in this picture, opening two weeks before Stella De Oro with good ruffling. 5 branches, 18 buds, instant rebloom this year, diamond dusted, opens at 50 degrees, may carry melon, closes poorly, may be slow increaser and would not set seed.

      • MH1430H MH1430H (Huben ) ? E ?, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip

            You know how sometimes the first bloom is all you need to decide on an introduction? MH1331E opened today, and looks like Nutmeg Elf in near-white.

        • MH1211.10 MH1211.10 (Huben ) 20 EM 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
          (Helicopter * MH0902S)
          A first attempt to bring narrow forms into white rebloomer lines. Not as narrow or white as the ultimate goal, and no sign of rebloom yet. Maybe next year.

    • MH0315E MH0315E (Huben ) 24 EM Re 3.25, Melon Self, Dor Dip

      • Helicopter Helicopter (Huben 2013) 36 EM Re 3.5, Melon Self, Dor Dip Ufo
        (A Small Multitude * MH0315E)
        Helicopter is the most distinctive introduction I have this year, and really excites me. Several people are working on small spideries and UFOs, and I got one by accident! My actual goal was hanging flowers, but what I got was a small MELON spatulate. Three breakthoughs at once: small size, narrow spatulate form, and melon color that will let me move to clean whites, pinks, reds and purples. All that AND it has one-time rebloom (late) in my garden and at Harmon Hill Farm. In plant habit, Helicopter resembles Nutmeg Elf (McCabe 1978), an Award Of Merit winner. A forest of slender, well branched scapes floats numerous flowers well above the foliage and well separated from each other. Grace personified! A great increaser with four branches and 18 buds.

        • MH1310.27 MH1310.27 (Huben ) NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
          (MH1112I * MH1118C)
          Remarkable for being precocial (blooming in only 7 months from seed) and extremely rapid increase (8 baby fans from the first one.) The clear color, green throat and beautiful form are a big bonus. This pollen went onto every rebloom parent in the garden. No rebloom yet, but I can't wait to see how it performs in 2015.

        • MH1310.7 MH1310.7 (Huben ) NearWhite Self, Dor Dip

    • Seeker of Light Seeker of Light (Huben 2015) 30 EM 3.75, Melon Reverse Bitone, Dor Dip Ufo
      (Ace Up My Sleeve * A Small Multitude)
      A wide spatulate unusual form in a pale melon bitone with a green throat. It has that wildflower look which is so rare in modern dayliliy breeding. The scapes lean slightly outwards without falling, and the blossoms all aim towards the light. Four branches and 18 buds.
      • MH0451L MH0451L (Huben ) 40 E Re 3.5, Melon Polychrome, Dor Dip
        (Kendall TTBS2 * Seeker of Light)
        Long wide thin branching on visibly dark scapes, some rebloom, scapes fall, on the cream side, poor opener, slow increaser.
        • Darkness Must Go Darkness Must Go (Huben 2015) 36 EM 3.5, Yellow Self, Dor Dip Ext
          (MH0220E * MH0451L)
          A vigorous small yellow with dark scapes. The darkness persists much better than most others. From a separate breeding line. Should carry melon, and makes a fine clump.

    • Snowy Stella Snowy Stella (Huben 2007) 24 E Re 3.25, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
      (MH0034F * Ace Up My Sleeve)
      At any northern nursery, Stella De Oro sells like hotcakes because customers are told it reblooms. The question most often heard is “Do you have it in other colors?" At last, Stella De Oro’s rebloom is available in a near-white. Snowy Stella is definitely a near-white, and definitely a very strong northern rebloomer. It increases very well, has an excellent stature, 16 buds on erect scapes, blooms are well presented, has a nice clump form, and pretty much all the fans rebloom. Scapes are somewhat staggered too: that prevents gaps in the bloom. Compared to Stella De Oro, the flowers are similar in size and form. The scapes have twice as many buds, and the continual rebloom is far more certain and abundant. The plants are slightly shorter, and bloom starts a week or two later.
    • Vanilla Stella Vanilla Stella (Huben 2009) 18 E Re 3, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
      (MH0021A * Ace Up My Sleeve)
      Near white self.

      Pronounced "vanELLA stella". My most exciting near-white continuous rebloomer. It's not the whitest, though it's far from cream. It has a nice green throat, a voluptuous bagel form, ruffles, and three sets of scapes! Vanilla Stella blooms continuously until frost at Harmon Hill Farm in New Hampshire. It's a very rapid increaser that throws near white seedlings with great green throats. It's a great as a pod or pollen parent.

      • Accentuate The Green Accentuate The Green (Huben 2013) 29 E Re 3, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
        (MH0331A * Vanilla Stella)
        Accentuate The Green is the first of a series of perfect little white flowers with green throats that rebloom in profusion. From its parent Vanilla Stella it inherits northern rebloom, rapid increase, excellent form and a very green throat. I thought the branching and budcount were ok, with 12 buds in my garden, but at the Harmon's it increased to 17 buds with their better conditions. The green is what makes this one special for me. It radiates out of the throat in the veins, a characteristic I'm breeding for. I have a lot of seedlings of Accentuate The Green with its sibs and MH0837A. I don't usually do sib crosses, but the green-on-white potential here is so high!
      • Green Effusion Green Effusion (Huben 2014) 21 E Re 3, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
        (MH0331A * Vanilla Stella)
        Green Effusion is the second of a series of perfect little white flowers with green throats that rebloom in profusion. From its parent Vanilla Stella it inherits northern rebloom, rapid increase, excellent form and a very green throat. I thought the branching and budcount were ok, with 4 branches and 12 buds in my garden, but at the Harmon's it skyrocketed to 32 inches, 5 branches and 50 buds on some scapes! The green is what makes this one special for me. It radiates out of the throat in the veins, even more than for its sib Accentuate The Green. I'm breeding heavily with this one for green over white. I also love the up-facing habit of the flowers. One small detail that is really attractive when you notice it is the rosy color of the pollen sacks against the green throat before they open.

        This one has one minor flaw: it doesn't open well after cool nights.

    • White And Nerdy White And Nerdy (Huben 2012) 28 EM Re 4.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
      (MH0034F * Ace Up My Sleeve)
      My best white rebloomer. Sib to Snowy Stella. A continuous rebloomer that is not yellow. Whiter than any tetraploid "white", it has a green throat good ruffling and heavy diamond dusting. 16 buds with 3 sets of scapes in my garden. Pod and pollen fertile. When crossed with other continuous rebloomers, it throws a high percentage of reblooming kids, great color clarity, high budcount, large green throats and a great deal of green in sepals as well. This one is named for my personal theme song, "Weird Al" Yankovic's "I'm Too White & Nerdy".


    Ancestors

    • Early And Often Early And Often (Huben 2001) 26 E Re 4, Peach Polychrome, Dor Dip Ext Fra Noc
      (Sunny Honey * Sobek 94.12)
      Honorable Mention award 2006! At last: a northern rebloomer that isn't yellow or gold. The heart of my breeding program, producing a great diversity of seedlings, many of them rebloomers. Very rapid increase. Tested and found highly rust resistant (a character passed to most of its kids.) Early And Often was my first introduction, and has lived up to its promise as a continuous rebloomer; it blooms non stop from early July until frost. Some growers report as many as seven sets of scapes per season. Unlike other diploid rebloomers, it is a color clarifier and readily gives up the melon tones in seedlings.
    • Sunshine On Clouds Sunshine On Clouds (Huben 2006) 26 E Re 4.25, Cream w'Pale Midrib, Dor Dip
      (MH9721E * MH9650E)
      An outstanding clump in my garden for the brilliance, unique shade, and floriferousness. It is a brilliant light yellow, in the cream range but with none of the dullness of most creams due to extreme diamond dusting. The upfacing blooms have a yellowgreen throat. Crossed with Early And Often, it is the parent of Ace Up My Sleeve, and the grandparent of my latest crop of nearwhite rebloomers. It has 18 buds on three branches. Sunshine On Clouds reblooms lightly in my garden, but in other people's gardens it is a much stronger rebloomer.
