ust the Beginning – Hunter 2019

JUST THE BEGINNING is a diamond-dusted polychrome that never has a bad hair day. It is an early morning opener AND a cool morning opener. The heavily ruffled edge does not hang up. Rain doesn’t phase it. It still looks beautiful, although different, after a 100′ day. This is the first of my seedlings that I thought was worthy of introduction.

JUST THE BEGINNING has rebloomed every year for the past 6 years. In addition, I was pleased to see that it can pass on rebloom even when crossed with plants that don’t show that characteristic here in Northern Illinois. I haven’t seen enough seedlings to say how consistently it does this. The offspring pictured below are rebloomers. Just the Beginning is vigorous, sending up rebloom scapes the spring after I lined it out. Branching in 2-4 way and will probably settle into 3-4 way when I stop moving and dividing it.
