Ain't Yeller (Huben 2014) 36 EE Re 3.25, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip Noc

MH0382A = (MH0057F * Ice Trumpets)
Price: $20 DF


For a long time, when I would look at an early or reblooming seedling, I would exclaim "but it's yellow!"

Ain't Yeller is my first triumph in extra-early near-white breeding. It blooms at least a week before Stella De Oro (first week of June here), blooms for around 4 weeks until the beginning of peak season, and then will send up some rebloom scapes later in the summer. Scapes have 5 branches and 30 buds in my garden.

As an early bloomer, opening after a cold night is critical and I've never seen Ain't Yeller fail to open. It's a creamy near-white (can't tell if it's from the yellow side or the melon side.)

Ain't Yeller could be planted to bloom with a June perennial bed. It's not as flashy as some, but it is a good color to work with in the garden or for hybridizing.

Ain't Yeller throws kids that can be much earlier than itself! It can rebloom, and will be used to move rebloom lines even earlier. It is somewhat top-branched, but the flowers don't seem to interfere and the kids can have similar budcount with better spaced branches.

      My very best extra early to date. A very pale melon with a green throat that opened the first of June! 4 branches and 24 buds. Extra earlies need to open well in cool weather, and this one was flat open well before 7AM after a 55 degree night (I didn't get to check with cooler temperatures.) It has excellent substance and is rainfast, though it is not entirely sunfast. I love the wide, ruffled petals and cool melon color. There is nothing else like it during the extra early season. Vigorous, too! If you want to have a beautiful daylily that blooms with the June perennials but isn't yellow, this is the one. If you want to breed for early bloom to facilitate rebloom or to cope with short growing seasons, I highly recommend this one.
