Darkness Rising (Huben 2016) 54 EM 4, Yellow Self, Dor Dip

MH0971X = (From Darkness Comes Light * MH0466A)
Price: $50 DF

Description

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.

  • Army of Darkness Army of Darkness (Huben 2015) 32 E 4.25, Melon Polychrome, Dor Dip Ext
    MH0735X = (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.

  • Halloween Darkness Halloween Darkness (Huben 2016) 36 EE 4, Melon Self, Dor Dip
    MH0735M = (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!
