Remember, a left mouse clock will show a larger image.
About five years ago, I was speaking to the Northern California Daylily Society when a lady came up and introduced herself as Marilyn Morss Johnson, the twin sister of Mort Morss. When meeting her, I knew they had to be twins, because she was just as nice as Mort. Well, I have been fortunate enough to be able to grow the flower H. 'Marilyn Morss Johnson' this year in the greenhouse and see it bloom and use it's pollen. It has an eye pattern that I am hoping will carry through to some of the seeds that I am making. Mort has to be very proud of this introduction. The image is shared by David and Mort.
Our 2010 introduction of H. 'Rober W. Carr' is blooming and looks much like it does outside. The majority of the time, a greenhouse flower will not be as good as one grown outside. It shows it's delicate pink coloration along with the yellow bubbly edge with a yellow throat to match the edge. It does carry the sculpting gene and shows up in many of it's seedlings. A very pretty flower to honor my friend Dr. Bob Carr.
Another seedling blooming is No. 9058 (Judy Farquar X Belle Cook). I have shown these parents in earlier blogs. The color is very bright and shows a large patterned eye that encompases most of the flower. A double edge highlights this flower. Here is 9058.
When the group visited last weekend, I caught a lot of flack for one flower that was blooming. It was H. Free Wheelin' introduced by Pat Stamile. Most of you know I am a bagel person so why the UF? Well, I had been drinking wine one night and someone said, "Let's make a trade." I said, "Sure." I didn't pay much attention to it but you can imagine my fear of visitors when I saw this flower bloom. Here it is. I have no idea on earth what to do with it!
Yesterday, I bit the bullet and purchased a 42" tiller for the back of our Kubota garden tractor that we mow the yard with. I finally got tired of the rough tilling that the
