Spring Frolic (Apps 1995) 21 EE 4, Yellow Self, Sev Dip Fra

(Happy Returns * Brocaded Gown)



    • Delicate Lace Delicate Lace (Huben 2003) 18 E Re 4, Cream Self, Dor Dip Fra Ext
      (MH9501B * Spring Frolic)
      What an unusual form! Quite orchid-like: any narrower and it would be spatulate. The foliage is truly dwarf, with a flower large enough to surprise: it's almost a rock garden plant. Blooms start out cream, but rapidly fade in the sun to a highly diamond-dusted pearly polychrome. It usually blooms two sets of scapes for me, but more in other people's gardens. 8 buds. It throws excellent reblooming kids of all shapes and sizes, and carries melon.

            (MH0416A * MH0801V)
            Short rebloomer with a huge green throat that holds all day. Great form, 2br8bu.

              (MH1112I * MH1118C)
              Remarkable for being precocial (blooming in only 7 months from seed) and extremely rapid increase (8 baby fans from the first one.) The clear color, green throat and beautiful form are a big bonus. This pollen went onto every rebloom parent in the garden. No rebloom yet, but I can't wait to see how it performs in 2015.

              (MH1112I * MH1118C)
              A precocial sibling to MH1310.27 that also has rapid increase.

    • Flowers Of Sulphur Flowers Of Sulphur (Huben 2003) 20 E Re 4.25, Yellow Self, Dor Dip Vfr Ext Emo
      (MH9501E * Spring Frolic)
      Why another yellow rebloomer? Well, it's a pure sulphur-yellow self, all the way into the throat, much bigger than most others, strongly diamond dusted, opens well, and has a delightful short stature. Only 9 buds (2 more than STELLA DE ORO), but routinely blooms at least two sets of scapes. Breeds rebloomers, and carries melon.

    • Twist Again Twist Again (Huben 2003) 28 E Re 5, YellowGreen Self, Dor Dip Noc
      (Cool Spice * Spring Frolic)
      The longest-blooming daylily in my garden. Four years running it has bloomed for 11 weeks on three sets of scapes. The color is a very cool yellow-green that fades in the sun to a remarkable cream and green giving the impression of a cream flower with a green bullseye. There is no other northern rebloomer on the market with this color. It has an excellent budcount of 20 (unusually high for a rebloomer.) The heavily ruffled petals twist differently in every flower, providing lots of motion in this unusual form. This one sells in August and September when people see the rebloom.
