Boston Symphony (Reilly 1998) 30 E 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip

(Swiss Mint * Gentle Shepherd)


Siblings

    Descendents

    • Ice Trumpets Ice Trumpets (Huben 2007) 30 E 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip Emo
      (Boston Symphony * MH9735A)
      The fashion for large, ruffled, round, eyed, edged, tetraploid daylilies has brought about neglect of other forms. In years past, many daylilies were celebrated for their simple, delicate, wildflower-like forms. Ice Trumpets is an important step in my quest for Golden Chimes in near-white. In just two generations from the species yezoensis, I have a very white, very green throat, narrow petalled trumpet form. As a matter of fact, it looks a lot like a small Easter Lily (though it is nowhere near as white as the real thing.) It has 21 buds and 4 branches.
      • Ain't Yeller Ain't Yeller (Huben 2014) 36 EE Re 3.25, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip Noc
        (MH0057F * Ice Trumpets)
        5 branches and 30 buds. Opens well cool. My first triumph in extra-early near-white breeding. A creamy near-white (can't tell if it's from the yellow side or the melon side.) Even better, it throws kids that can be much earlier than itself! It can rebloom, and will be used to move rebloom lines even earlier.
        • Commence Commence (Huben 2016) 26 EE 4, Melon Polychrome, Dor Dip Noc
          (Ain't Yeller * Chill)
          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.

        • MH1025F MH1025F (Huben ) 30 EE 3.25, Melon Polychrome, Dor Dip
          (Ain't Yeller * LRCJO)
          A very pale melon with slender, graceful scapes! 4 branches and 24 buds. OWC.

        • MH1026.23 MH1026.23 (Huben ) 24 EE 3.75, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
          (Ain't Yeller * Chill)
          The earliest near white I've ever seen! Rainfast, opens well in cool weather. Nice green throat! 3 branches and 12 buds.

      • Chill Chill (Huben 2014) 28 EE 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
        (Ice Trumpets * MH0207K)
        A beautiful extra early, ruffled near-white with a sunfast green throat.
        • Commence Commence (Huben 2016) 26 EE 4, Melon Polychrome, Dor Dip Noc
          (Ain't Yeller * Chill)
          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.

        • MH1023B MH1023B (Huben ) ? EE 4, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
          (Frozen * Chill)
          A breakthrough in near white extra earlies!

        • MH1026.23 MH1026.23 (Huben ) 24 EE 3.75, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
          (Ain't Yeller * Chill)
          The earliest near white I've ever seen! Rainfast, opens well in cool weather. Nice green throat! 3 branches and 12 buds.

        • MH1430H MH1430H (Huben ) ? E ?, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
          (Frozen * Chill)
          Another near white early, much whiter than the others. Excellent substance and opens well in cool weather.

      • Clarity Of Purpose Clarity Of Purpose (Huben 2014) 44 E 5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip Ext
        (MH0219I * Ice Trumpets)
        3 to 5 branches and 15 to 25 buds. An extremely clean near-white with a green throat, white veins, good substance and heavy diamond dusting. Great foliage, increases well, and very aphid resistant.
      • Gladycita Gladycita (Huben 2016) 36 EM 4, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
        (Ice Trumpets * Lights Of Valinor)
        The most graceful near-white I've bred so far. Gladycita is named for my fiancee's mother in Ecuador. An early morning opener with excellent ruffling, a nice trumpety shape, and the best kind of white with a green throat. Parent of Sioux Hall: Galdycita throughs extraordinary clarity and great form. Not a rapid increaser, but quite fertile. 4 branches and 12 buds in my garden, but much more at Harmon Hill Farm.
        • MH1190E MH1190E (Huben ) 28 E 3, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
          (MH9735A * Gladycita)
          Extreme trumpet!

        • Sioux Hall Sioux Hall (Huben 2016) 36 EM 3.5, Lavender Self, Dor Dip
          (Sobek 93.36 * Gladycita)
          This is a very intense and sunfast lavender with an extraordinary green throat that speaks for itself. It is named in honor of the late, great Sioux Hall (6th dan Aikido), who taught me so much about Aikido and raising children. I knew Sioux for 32 years, and she has been a close friend of my entire family. Sioux usually tied her red hair with a lavender ribbon. I'm registering this daylily with 5 branches and 33 buds, but sometimes it has 6 branches and 37 buds (and sometimes less.) The excellent scape, which is erect and doesn't lean at all, comes from altissima breeding by Bob Sobek.

      • MH0220E MH0220E (Huben ) 36 EM 2.75, Cream Self, Dor Dip
        (A Small Multitude * Ice Trumpets)
        A plain, light yellow with dark scapes and excellent branching and budcount. Poor substance.
        • 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.

      • MH1194A MH1194A (Huben )
        (Ice Trumpets * MH0463H)
        Near white the first year and cream the second, but the green throat is awesome. Excellent branching and budcount.

      • Paean For Jocelyn Paean For Jocelyn (Huben 2013) 48 E 4, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
        (Sobek 88.40A * Ice Trumpets)
        I've been working on tall and small near-whites for many years now, and here is the first really good one. Paean For Jocelyn has excellent branching and budcount that it inherited from both parents combined with species-like graceful scapes. It is named in memory of Jocelyn Spragg, a dear friend and stalwart of the New England Daylily Society, who was also tall and well branched. Tall whites like this stand out in the garden even if their flowers are small. If you will pardon the pun, it is a high achievement.
      • Virgin Virgin (Huben 2016) 44 EM 3.75, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
        (MH0219I * Ice Trumpets)
        One of my favorites because of the extremely clear white color. This one really stands out in the garden for the brilliance of the white. 4 branches and 14 buds. From my tall-and-small near-white breeding.

      • Yearn To Be Clouds Yearn To Be Clouds (Huben 2014) 38 EM Re 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
        (MH0219I * Ice Trumpets)
        5 to 6 branches and 21 buds. A near-white with a green throat, a faint green overlay, good substance and extreme diamond dusting. Flowers are held facing upwards, with the petals lifting off the sepals. Instant rebloom, great foliage, excellent scape and rapid increase.
    • MH0029R MH0029R (Huben ) 24 E 4.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
      (Boston Symphony * Early And Often)
      • MH0207K MH0207K (Huben ) 20 E 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip Noc Ext
        (MH0029R * MH0015.5)
        • Brilliant Bouquet Brilliant Bouquet (Huben 2013) 28 EM Re 3.5, Cream Self, Dor Dip
          (Sunshine On Clouds * MH0207K)
          When I bred Sunshine On Clouds, I loved the behavior but wanted a whiter flower. With Brilliant Bouquet I failed to get a whiter flower, but kept all the good behavior, improved the foliage, improved the flower form a little, and got a marvelous performer. Sunshine On Clouds often covers itself in bloom, but Brilliant Bouquet brings that to a new level, at times giving a "cushion mum" effect. The above photo is ungroomed except for liveheading the previous day, and it is unnecessary to remove the spent blooms because they close well. With 5 branches, 28 buds, some bud building and some rebloom, that means a long season covered with flowers.
        • Chill Chill (Huben 2014) 28 EE 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
          (Ice Trumpets * MH0207K)
          A beautiful extra early, ruffled near-white with a sunfast green throat.
          • Commence Commence (Huben 2016) 26 EE 4, Melon Polychrome, Dor Dip Noc
            (Ain't Yeller * Chill)
            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.

            (Frozen * Chill)
            A breakthrough in near white extra earlies!

          • MH1026.23 MH1026.23 (Huben ) 24 EE 3.75, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
            (Ain't Yeller * Chill)
            The earliest near white I've ever seen! Rainfast, opens well in cool weather. Nice green throat! 3 branches and 12 buds.

          • MH1430H MH1430H (Huben ) ? E ?, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
            (Frozen * Chill)
            Another near white early, much whiter than the others. Excellent substance and opens well in cool weather.

        • Ethereal Pink Ethereal Pink (Huben 2016) 24 E Re 4, Pink Self, Dor Dip
          (Boston Marathon * MH0207K)
          The best, clearest, appleblossom pink color I have ever seen in a daylily, and on one of my continual rebloomers no less! I love the narrow, flat-open, ruffled form which I am working into my other narrow forms. An early morning opener with a green throat. Not crazy vigorous like its parent Boston Marathon, but adequately so. 3 branches and 12 buds, but who cares: it reblooms strongly!

        • Height Of Fashion Height Of Fashion (Huben 2012) 44 EM 4, Pink w'Dark Eye, Dor Dip
          (Frequent Flyer * MH0207K)
          Tall-and-small, well-ruffled pink with a dark eye and green throat. Rapid increaser that stands erect and has splendid foliage. Something of a bitone. Strong pollen parent. 20 buds, 4 branches.
        • MH0416A MH0416A (Huben ) 20 E 3.25, Cream Self, Dor Dip

            (MH0416A * MH0801V)
            Short rebloomer with a huge green throat that holds all day. Great form, 2br8bu.
            • 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
              (MH1112I * MH1118C)
              A precocial sibling to MH1310.27 that also has rapid increase.

        • MH0422F MH0422F (Huben ) 20 E Re 4, Pink w'Rose Eye, Dor Dip
          (My Complimentary * MH0207K)
          A clear, sunfast, pink rebloomer. Few buds, small plant.
        • Magenta Kisses Magenta Kisses (Huben 2013) 28 E Re 3.5, NearWhite w'Magenta Eye, Dor Dip Noc
          (Frequent Flyer * MH0207K)
          Magenta Kisses has long been a favorite of mine, because it has such beautifully clear colors and such a sharply defined, very green throat. It is one of the spin offs I expected from my rebloom lines, but not directly in my breeding plans because I'm not working for eyed rebloomers. Magenta Kisses is a child of Frequent Flier, which can act as a color clarifier and often passes rebloom. It is a consistent one-time rebloomer here, and could be an important part of anybody's northern rebloom program. Even though it has only three branches and ten buds, that's not important because of the rebloom. Because it is only a modest increaser, I would recommend crossing it with rebloomers that have rapid increase.

        (MH0047I * A Small Multitude)
        My next nominee for an award. Cream blooms on inky purple scapes. 25 buds, 4 branches. Exceptional plant habits and performance.
        • Army of Darkness Army of Darkness (Huben 2015) 32 E 4.25, Melon Polychrome, Dor Dip Ext
          (MH0466A * From Darkness Comes Light)
          An enormous breakthrough in dark scape breeding! This first dark-scaped melon has entirely dark scapes, 4 branches and 27 buds, long branches, and a strong red stripe on sepal reverse. The flowers are not fancy, but they are a distinctively colored light melon with cream tints, yellow green throat and yellow and green veins. I've used this one very heavily in my breeding program.
          • MH0965D MH0965D (Huben ) 40 EM 3, Yellow Self, Dor Dip
            (Donna Diana * Army of Darkness)
            This is what dark scapes and buds can be. One of the darkest things I've bred. Carries melon. 4 branches and 12 buds.

          • MH1074N MH1074N (Huben ) 20 EE Re 3.75, Melon Self, Dor Dip
            (MH0433P * Army of Darkness)
            An exciting seedling with 5 branches and 35 buds on very dark scapes. Some instant rebloom.

          • MH1123A MH1123A (Huben ) 32 E 3.25, Yellow Self, Dor Dip
            (Golden Sprouts * Army of Darkness)
            This one is preregistered already as 'Vader's Choice' because the scapes are so very black. It has only one fault in my opinion: the flowers are yellow. The flowers have a green throat and bronze sepal backs and open well early in the morning even in cool weather. The stiff, erect scapes are dark on all sides and have up to 5 branches and 30 buds. The foliage is dark, glossy, and low, and it is a good increaser.

          • MH1123B MH1123B (Huben ) 32 E 3, Gold Self, Dor Dip

          • MH1125G MH1125G (Huben ) 44 E 4, Yellow Self, Dor Dip Noc
            (LM2 * Army of Darkness)
            This one has tall, very dark scapes with 7 branches and 36 buds. I'd introduce it in a heartbeat except that the scapes fall in my garden. The flowers are green throated, large, bright and beautiful, if tailored. I'm breeding this to melons with erect scapes and some dark scape genetics.

          • MH1125X MH1125X (Huben ) 42 E 4.5, YellowGreen Self, Dor Dip

            A very pure melon, ruffled, OWC, 4br30bu, erect, stiff scape, sunfast, narrow and trumpety. Pod sterile, pollen weak, carries dark scapes.

        • Darkness Rising Darkness Rising (Huben 2016) 54 EM 4, Yellow Self, Dor Dip
          (From Darkness Comes Light * MH0466A)
          A sulphur-yellow with a green throat, red markings on the backs of the sepals, and the best TALL dark scapes I've ever seen, with 5 branches and usually 23 buds. However, it frequently bud builds with up to 9 buds per branch, and I've seen 37 buds on some scapes. The darkness of the scapes persists longer than many other dark scape daylilies. It's a rapid increaser. The only fault is that it's yellow, instead of the white I eventually want. Darkness Rising should carry melon, meaning that you could leave the yellow behind in half the offspring in the next generation. This is from an excellent cross that gave me 3 introductions.

        • Halloween Darkness Halloween Darkness (Huben 2016) 36 EE 4, Melon Self, Dor Dip
          (MH0466A * From Darkness Comes Light)
          My favorite garden plant among my dark scape introductions. Not quite as dark scaped or pale flowered as its sibling Army of Darkness, and not as tall as sibling Darkness Rising, but with a wonderful saturated melon color that can verges on pumpkin and a green throat. The dark scapes have 4 branches and 33 buds, and there is a strong red stripe on the sepal reverses. Halloween Darkness will add a lot of excitement to your garden because the dark scapes and the first flowers appear very early, preceding Stella De Oro. Gorgeous and distinctive!

        (MH0057F * Ice Trumpets)
        5 branches and 30 buds. Opens well cool. My first triumph in extra-early near-white breeding. A creamy near-white (can't tell if it's from the yellow side or the melon side.) Even better, it throws kids that can be much earlier than itself! It can rebloom, and will be used to move rebloom lines even earlier.
        • Commence Commence (Huben 2016) 26 EE 4, Melon Polychrome, Dor Dip Noc
          (Ain't Yeller * Chill)
          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.

        (MH0226E * MH0288J)
        Modern trumpet form daylilies with modern ruffles and colors provide an important contrast to the usual bagel forms which so dominate our gardens. Exalted Trumpets is a true tall-and-small with excellent scapes that have 6 branches and 24 buds. Many other tall daylilies concentrate their branches in the last few inches, but Exalted Trumpets places the branches at wide intervals on the scape. The melon color is much less yellow than this picture shows, and the sepals have prominant red stripes on the reverse.

          This is what dark scapes and buds can be. One of the darkest things I've bred. Carries melon. 4 branches and 12 buds.

          An exciting seedling with 5 branches and 35 buds on very dark scapes. Some instant rebloom.

          (Golden Sprouts * Army of Darkness)
          This one is preregistered already as 'Vader's Choice' because the scapes are so very black. It has only one fault in my opinion: the flowers are yellow. The flowers have a green throat and bronze sepal backs and open well early in the morning even in cool weather. The stiff, erect scapes are dark on all sides and have up to 5 branches and 30 buds. The foliage is dark, glossy, and low, and it is a good increaser.

          (LM2 * Army of Darkness)
          This one has tall, very dark scapes with 7 branches and 36 buds. I'd introduce it in a heartbeat except that the scapes fall in my garden. The flowers are green throated, large, bright and beautiful, if tailored. I'm breeding this to melons with erect scapes and some dark scape genetics.

          A very pure melon, ruffled, OWC, 4br30bu, erect, stiff scape, sunfast, narrow and trumpety. Pod sterile, pollen weak, carries dark scapes.

      • Darkness Rising Darkness Rising (Huben 2016) 54 EM 4, Yellow Self, Dor Dip
        (From Darkness Comes Light * MH0466A)
        A sulphur-yellow with a green throat, red markings on the backs of the sepals, and the best TALL dark scapes I've ever seen, with 5 branches and usually 23 buds. However, it frequently bud builds with up to 9 buds per branch, and I've seen 37 buds on some scapes. The darkness of the scapes persists longer than many other dark scape daylilies. It's a rapid increaser. The only fault is that it's yellow, instead of the white I eventually want. Darkness Rising should carry melon, meaning that you could leave the yellow behind in half the offspring in the next generation. This is from an excellent cross that gave me 3 introductions.

      • Halloween Darkness Halloween Darkness (Huben 2016) 36 EE 4, Melon Self, Dor Dip
        (MH0466A * From Darkness Comes Light)
        My favorite garden plant among my dark scape introductions. Not quite as dark scaped or pale flowered as its sibling Army of Darkness, and not as tall as sibling Darkness Rising, but with a wonderful saturated melon color that can verges on pumpkin and a green throat. The dark scapes have 4 branches and 33 buds, and there is a strong red stripe on the sepal reverses. Halloween Darkness will add a lot of excitement to your garden because the dark scapes and the first flowers appear very early, preceding Stella De Oro. Gorgeous and distinctive!
