Early Canary.  Hollingsworth.  2015.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Parentage:  Unknown.  Seedling #: 2881.   Usually a full double, but can be semi-double in our climate and on young plants.  Has both all-over and progressive stamen transformation, no stamens produced; occasional flowers will be seen with staminodes next to the carpels at center. One flower per stem, opens light yellow with highlights of additional pigmentation at first opening. Guard petals are rounded and strongly cupped; flower size 5–6 inches (13–15 cm). Carpels are green, moderately hairy, the stigmas, when present, are deep red-purple.  Strong stems may spread during flowering, especially when subjected to rough weather; foliage is green to yellow-green, pointed leaflets relatively long in relation to width. Average height is approximately 30 inches.  The name reflects both the yellow color and early opening of the cultivar.
