una’s Moonsterpiece – Hunter-L. 2019

The summer of 2011, my 2 year old granddaughter was in the garden with me while I was hybridizing, and piped up, “Granny, me do it.” I told her to pick a flower she liked, and showed her how to remove a stamen. “Ok, now pick another flower you like.” After she dabbed the pollen on the pistil, we tagged the bloom. That’s when I noticed that Luna had chosen as parent plants, COYOTE MOON and MOONLIT MASQUERADE, both of which rebloom in my garden.

It was a serendipitous choice which yielded several robust rebloomers. Luna is 9 now, and we are introducing our first creations together. Embarrassingly, hers has better branching (4-6 way) than any of mine, instantly reblooms every year and in 2017 bloomed for 3 months. Fertile both ways.
