This seedling, code named N210-1, sprouted last year. It came from a batch of "OP" seeds from one of my earlier repeat blooming Hulthemias. I have no idea what the pollen parent was, but clearly, this was not the result of a self pollination. I had been trying for the two previous years to come up with a striped Hulthemia, and though I got a couple of them, neither was as good as this one.
It appears to have a plant habit and quantity of bloom similar to 'Ballerina'. It has a couple of real bonuses too: it seems to be one of my cleanest Hulthemia seedlings, and it has an abundance of pollen, making it ideal for use in further breeding). As expected, it has been put to work quite a lot this year.
P.S. This idea was inspired independently by my daughter Claire, who was 10 years old at the time, and by my favorite mentor in rose breeding, Mr. Ralph Moore (forever young at heart), who was 100 years old at the time!
