Here is what Rick & Roger had to say about their first 2016 Introduction:

MORNING HUES (Tasco 2016), 15", ML. SDB (standard dwarf bearded). 3 buds, more when a second branch is present. 2 very involved seedlings make the parentage. There are doses of the TB Mesmerizer in each seedling; reblooming SDBs such as Carmel Celeste, All That Magic, and sibs to Replicator; SDBs Love Unlimited and Yearling; Hager and Mathes pumilas; MDBs Punk (space-age) & Ceremony, and several space-age SDB seedlings. Should be fun to breed with having all the space-age and rebloom genes behind it, though neither trait has been seen on Morning Hues so far.
