Frequent Flyer (Kendall 2003) 28 E Re 4, Cream w'Lavender Eye, Dor Dip Ext Noc

95IRF2 = (Millie Schlumf * Brocaded Gown) F2

Description

Stephen Kendall has bred a fabulous rebloomer! While reminiscent of the eyed SILOAM lines, it sends up three sets of scapes annually for me. Though the budcount is not high (averaging 11), the tall, graceful, well-branched scapes hold the recurved flowers in a fountain of non-interfering bloom. The foliage is a clean, deep green, and it has yet to display spring sickness here. It is fertile both ways, and throws strongly reblooming kids. A melon carrier and color clarifier: the lavenders and pinks from it are very good!

Descendents

  • Boston Marathon Boston Marathon (Huben 2010) 24 E Re 3.5, Pink w'Rose Eye, Dor Dip Noc
    (Frequent Flyer * Early And Often)
    Pink with rose eye. Northern Continuous Rebloom. A pretty pink rebloomer with great green throat. Blooms until frost.
    • 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.
    • 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!

            (Helicopter * MH1107N)
            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.

        • MH1109K MH1109K (Huben ) 24 E Re 3, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
          (Vanilla Stella * MH0902S)
          Excellent substance, sunfast, very white.

          (A Small Multitude * MH0902S)
          Tall, slender, graceful scapes with loads of buds and reblooms! 4br28bu, opens flat, sunfast, melon side of 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.

        • Porcelain Porcelain (Huben 2018) 34 EM 3.25, Melon Self, Dor Dip
          (A Small Multitude * MH0902S)
          I knew that A Small Multitude held a multitude of possibilities for breeding. I knew it might pass the branching and budcount, and I knew it could throw melon flowers. I had already seen many seedlings from it. But Porcelain blew me away. It has small, round, pansy-faced, pale melon blooms with a green throat and wide, blunt sepals on amazingly well-branched scapes. I count 5 branches with up to 48 buds. But more importantly, the behavior of Porcelain is special. In my awful garden with droughty conditions and record high populations of aphids and thrips, it still had the awesome budcount AND it did not drop buds (though almost everything else did.) A good increaser, but only a mediocre seed setter. Though it comes from rebloom lines, it does not rebloom for me. It might in the south.

    • MH0315E MH0315E (Huben ) 24 EM Re 3.25, Melon Self, Dor Dip
      (Boston Marathon * Ace Up My Sleeve)
      • 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.

          (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.

        • MH1331E MH1331E (Huben ) 26 E Re 3.5, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
          (Helicopter * MH1107N)
          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.

      • MH1116E MH1116E (Huben )
        (MH0315E * Green Effusion)
        A melon and white bicolor.

  • 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.
  • Let Me Be Clear Let Me Be Clear (Huben 2010) 26 EM Re 4, Pink w' Faint Band, Dor Dip
    (Frequent Flyer * MH0015.5)
    Icy Pink with faint band. Northern Continuous rebloom. The clearest pink rebloomer to date. Rapid increaser. Excellent rebloomer. Blooms until frost.

  • MH0705P MH0705P (Huben ) 34 E 4, Orchid Bitone, Dor Dip
    (Frequent Flyer * ESP)

  • MH0705R MH0705R (Huben ) 34 E 4.5, Pink w'Burgundy Eye, Dor Dip
    (Frequent Flyer * ESP)

  • MH1120A MH1120A (Huben ) 44 EM 5, Pink w'Purple Eye, Dor Dip
    (Frequent Flyer * Ida Mae Norris)
    What a pleasant surprise! I wanted to bring the fabulous form of Ida Mae Norris into rebloom lines. I didn't get rebloom (and didn't expect it this generation.) But I got terrific tall scapes and amazing color clarity with excellent branching and budcount. It is sunfast, has 4 branches and 22 buds and should carry rebloom. The scapes fall: that is a major fault. But this is one of my most heavily used parents for 2014.

  • MH1120G MH1120G (Huben ) 40 M 5, Pink w'Purple Eye, Dor Dip
    (Frequent Flyer * Ida Mae Norris)
    This sunfast sibling to MH1120A has an even better appearance. The scapes are slightly shorter, and it only had 4 branches and 10 buds this year, but the scapes do not fall. It was an obvious choice for a sibling cross, since it should also carry rebloom.

  • MH1121R MH1121R (Huben ) 42 EM 4.5, Pink w'Purple Eye, Dor Dip
    (Frequent Flyer * ESP)
    4br25bu, should carry rebloom

  • 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.
