Frozen (Huben 2015) 30 EE 4.25, Cream Blend, Dor Dip Ext
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.
Frozen will be one of the first nicely formed daylilies in your garden, yet bloom well into midseason with excellent scapes. The photograph below was taken in mid July, weeks after first bloom, and shows plenty of tiny buds that promised weeks more bloom. Frozen is a heavy bloomer with high scape density.
The name Frozen was suggested by Leiloni Turner, who you can see advising me below. That's Frozen peeking out behind her elbow. (Photo used with parental permission.)
Depending on the light and temperatures, Frozen can photograph various colors between melon and yellow, as you can see below. The top picture is pretty accurate for the way my eyes perceive the color in the garden.
Frozen is a fine breeder for extra earlies with branching that open very well in cool temperatures. It is an important parent in my breeding for extra earlies.

A breakthrough in near white extra earlies!
MH1142E (Huben ) 32 EE Re 3.25, Cream Self, Dor Dip
(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.

Another near white early, much whiter than the others. Excellent substance and opens well in cool weather.

Ace Up My Sleeve (Huben 2010) 22 E Re 4, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
(Early And Often * Sunshine On Clouds)
Near white self. Northern Continuous Rebloom. Increases slowly but an exceptional breeder of continuous rebloomers.
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 (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.
