H. hakunesis 'Clone 2' is 36" tall, ML, 3" across and DOR. It has up to 60 buds on scapes with 6 way plus terminal branching and wide, glossy green leaves. Petals are 3/4" wide, sepals 5/8" wide. Leaves emerge early and are often nipped by frosts but recover quickly and seem to be leaf streak resistant. However, this plant really sulks here after being divided in spring, putting out wimpy leaves for the whole growing season and refusing to bloom.
