Nate Bremer
Herbaceous Hybrid

Seedling number #HH4-17. Parentage: ‘Greenland’ x (‘Dreamtime’ x ‘Vanilla Schnapps’). First bloomed 2015, first propagated 2017. Midseason blooming DOUBLE flowers open very light blush, and quickly fade to white. Flowers are 15.25cm (6”) in diameter, upward facing, and average one per stem, occasionally with a single side bud. Blooms are long lasting, and display well for many days when compared to other cultivars. As they open, flowers become more rounded, or spherical, in appearance. Guard petals are wide, rounded, ruffled, notched, and average 5cm (2”) in width. Numerous smaller, more narrow inner petals obfuscate reproductive structures, and are creased, ruffled, and notched. Flowers are consistent in their opening progression, and are uniform across the entire plant. No fragrance noted. Flowers possess zero to five moderately hairy green carpels with bright pink stigmas of normal anatomy. Some carpels may be wrapped in petals and are not visible. Fertile both ways. Stamens are between 1.25-2cm (0.5-0.75”) in length; filaments are pink, with cream-colored tips. No disk present. Plants reach 86.4cm (34”) at maturity, and carry sparse, unlobed medium-green foliage typical of herbaceous hybrids – foliage begins about 20cm (8”) from the ground, is light red upon emergence, and maintains a waxy cuticle and deep-green coloration throughout the growing season. Mechanical support is unnecessary. Pronounced Haa • may • uh, Haumea is the Hawaiian goddess of childbirth, and is also the name of a dwarf planet located beyond Neptune’s orbit. The planet is white in appearance when viewed through a telescope, thus fitting for this cultivar.
