MH1123A (Huben nr) 32 E 3.25, Yellow Self, Dor Dip

(Golden Sprouts * Army of Darkness)

Description

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.

Maybe the photo below exaggerates the darkness of the scapes a bit, but it really does stand out like that to my eye.

One good feature is that it won't need grooming: the previous day's flowers have furled neatly.

I've bred heavily with MH1123A because it is one of the darkest scaped things I've ever seen, it has great plant qualities, and it carries melon.

    This one was registered as 'Vader's Choice' because the scapes are so very black. I knew it would be an introduction just looking at the scapes, before the flowers had even opened. It has only two minor faults according to my tastes: the flowers are yellow and they don't recurve as much as I like. The flowers have a green throat and bronze sepal backs and open well early in the morning even in 50 degree weather. More importantly the flowers furl well into beautiful, bud-like bundles, making this plant self-grooming. The stiff, erect scapes are very dark on all sides and have up to 5 branches and 30 buds. Vader's Choice presents its distinctive, black scapes for weeks before Stella De Oro blooms, and then starts blooming shortly after Stella. The foliage is terrific: dark, glossy, and unusually low. It is a vigorous increaser. Likely rust resistant.
