36 EE 4, NearWhite Self, Dor Dip
Ice Trumpets * MH0207K = Ice Trumpets * (Boston Symphony * Early And Often) * (Millie Schlumf * Early And Often)

Unlike several of its sibs which are very near white with green throats, this one is clearly closer to a pale melon blend. But it is a true EE, blooming a few days before Stella De Oro with a good bagel shape, 4 branches and 16 buds. It has another fault, that it doesn't open well after cool nights. But it's still an improvement for breeding EE near-whites, and it should be carrying genes for whiter flowers with greener throats.
