Purity (Traub 1949) 45 ML 4, Yellow Self, Dor Dip Fra

Parentage unknown.



  • Aerial Aerial (Sobek 1985) 34 M 2.5, Gold Self, Dor Dip
    (Corky * Purity)
    • MH0047I MH0047I (Huben ) 36 EM Re 2.5, NearWhite Blend, Dor Dip
      (Aerial * Boston Symphony)
      • From Darkness Comes Light From Darkness Comes Light (Huben 2010) 34 E 3.5, Cream Self, Dor Dip Noc
        (MH0047I * A Small Multitude)
        My next nominee for an award. Cream blooms on inky purple scapes. 25 buds, 4 branches. Exceptional plant habits and performance.
        • Army of Darkness Army of Darkness (Huben 2015) 32 E 4.25, Melon Polychrome, Dor Dip Ext
          (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.
          • MH0965D MH0965D (Huben ) 40 EM 3, Yellow Self, Dor Dip
            (Donna Diana * Army of Darkness)
            This is what dark scapes and buds can be. One of the darkest things I've bred. Carries melon. 4 branches and 12 buds.

          • MH1074N MH1074N (Huben ) 20 EE Re 3.75, Melon Self, Dor Dip
            (MH0433P * Army of Darkness)
            An exciting seedling with 5 branches and 35 buds on very dark scapes. Some instant rebloom.

          • MH1123A MH1123A (Huben ) 32 E 3.25, Yellow Self, Dor Dip
            (Golden Sprouts * Army of Darkness)
            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.

          • MH1123B MH1123B (Huben ) 32 E 3, Gold Self, Dor Dip
            (Golden Sprouts * Army of Darkness)
            OWC, EMO, Dark++, 5br30bu, bronze sepal backs, stiff erect scape, GT, foliage dark, glossy, low

          • MH1124B MH1124B (Huben ) 38 E 3, Gold Self, Dor Dip
            (Little Cheese * Army of Darkness)
            5br36bu, dark scape, GT

          • MH1125F MH1125F (Huben ) 55 EM 5, Rose Bicolor, Dor Dip Noc
            (LM2 * Army of Darkness)
            erect, 7br36bu, melon base, carries dark scapes

          • MH1125G MH1125G (Huben ) 44 E 4, Yellow Self, Dor Dip Noc
            (LM2 * Army of Darkness)
            This one has tall, very dark scapes with 7 branches and 36 buds. I'd introduce it in a heartbeat except that the scapes fall in my garden. The flowers are green throated, large, bright and beautiful, if tailored. I'm breeding this to melons with erect scapes and some dark scape genetics.

          • MH1125X MH1125X (Huben ) 42 E 4.5, YellowGreen Self, Dor Dip
            (LM2 * Army of Darkness)
            Dark scapes!

          • MH1128E MH1128E (Huben ) 44 E 3.5, Melon Self, Dor Dip
            (Exalted Trumpets * Army of Darkness)
            A very pure melon, ruffled, OWC, 4br30bu, erect, stiff scape, sunfast, narrow and trumpety. Pod sterile, pollen weak, carries dark scapes.

          • Vader's Choice Vader's Choice (Huben 2017) 32 E 2.75, Yellow Self, Dor Dip
            (Golden Sprouts * Army of Darkness)
            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.

        • Darkness Rising Darkness Rising (Huben 2016) 54 EM 4, Yellow Self, Dor Dip
          (From Darkness Comes Light * MH0466A)
          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.

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

        • MH1122.22 MH1122.22 (Huben ) 32 E 3, Melon Self, Dor Dip
          (From Darkness Comes Light * Sobek 84.76B)
          Great increase, dark scapes and it is not yellow.

    • Sobek 84.76B Sobek 84.76B (Huben ) 30 EM Re 3, Melon Self, Dor Dip
      (Aerial * Stella De Oro)
    • Umpty Kajillion Umpty Kajillion (Huben 2010) 42 E 3.5, Melon w'Cream Polychrome, Dor Dip Emo
      (Aerial * Boston Symphony)
      Melon with cream polychrome. 40 buds and 6 branches. Exceptionally floriferous, terrific scapes.
  • Echo The Sun Echo The Sun (Sobek 1990) 41 M 3.25, Yellow Self, Dor Dip Ext Noc
    (Purity * Stella De Oro)
    A spectacular tall-and-small yellow with 60 buds or more.
    • MH0288J MH0288J (Huben )
      (Echo The Sun * Polar Picture)
      pale, opens well, tall as ETS, no tongue
      • Exalted Trumpets Exalted Trumpets (Huben 2016) 44 E 3.5, Melon Self, Dor Dip
        (MH0226E * MH0288J)
        Modern trumpet form daylilies with modern ruffles and colors provide an important contrast to the usual bagel forms which so dominate our gardens. Exalted Trumpets is a true tall-and-small with excellent scapes that have 6 branches and 24 buds. Many other tall daylilies concentrate their branches in the last few inches, but Exalted Trumpets places the branches at wide intervals on the scape. The melon color is much less yellow than this picture shows, and the sepals have prominant red stripes on the reverse.
      • MH0463H MH0463H (Huben ) 48 EM 3.75, Melon Polychrome, Dor Dip
        (MH0226E * MH0288J)
        A tall-and-small melon trumpet with 6 br, 35 bu, GT.
        • 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.

  • Toy Trumpets Toy Trumpets (Sobek 1984) 33 M 2.63, Yellow Self, Dor Dip
    (Corky * Purity)
    One of Bob Sobek's masterpieces. Extraordinary upright scapes with massive budcount and branching bear several open flowers at a time. Increases very rapidly, and frequently wins awards at shows.
    • Kendall TTBS2 Kendall TTBS2 (Kendall ) Cream Self, Evr Dip
      (Toy Trumpets * Big Snowbird)
      Gorgeous full formed ruffled, round, small trumpet flower, well branched, many buds, repeat blooms, pale light yellow, an exceedingly slow increaser.
      • MH0451L MH0451L (Huben ) 40 E Re 3.5, Melon Polychrome, Dor Dip
        (Kendall TTBS2 * Seeker of Light)
        Long wide thin branching on visibly dark scapes, some rebloom, scapes fall, on the cream side, poor opener, slow increaser.
        • 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.
