Description

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. Names like Corky and Golden Chimes are not much remembered, and their forms never made the transition from yellow to other colors.

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 for me: in the Sobek and Harmon gardens (nearby) it does MUCH better, and put on a show that drew me from across the garden. This one is distinctive in the combination of form and color. The height doesn't reach my ultimate goals (it's a mere 30 inches) but it's still a literal standout. I've bred with it very heavily: it has almost everything I want except more height. No trace of rebloom here or in Utah, though the F1 parent does rebloom.

Ice Trumpets is a great color clarifier in my breeding, and some of its children are among the whitest daylilies I’ve ever seen. Others have excellent height, budcount, branching, and trumpet form.

Incidentally, Ice Trumpets demonstrates the principle that even starting with a species, in two generations you can be back to near-white with green throats. Too much daylily breeding is aimed at immediate results in the first generation, and too little plans on success reclaiming recessive characteristics in the second generation.

    • 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

      • 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.
