Daylily World – part 4

Apart from their own introductions David & Mort grow lots of lovely cultivars from other hybridisers in their garden and  I was surprised at the amount of spiders & UFs they grow.  There was so many that I admired but could not get decent photographs of them all.  Here is a selection from my best photographs.

I love this one.  It is AMBROSIA ROWS by Kathy Lamb, 2006

BRIDEY GREESON – Grace/Smith 2003.  No wonder this one was so popular when it was first introduced.  I have it but it never looks like this and I was beginning to wonder what all the fuss was about…..now I know.

CHESTNUT RIDGE – Moore 2009.  I love the colours and pattern on this one.

DOUBLE BLUE BLOOD by Terah George 2005.   This one has an incredible colour which the camera has not quite picked up.

FOLLOW THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD – Gossard 2007

GREEN INFERNO – Gossard 2006.  This had a very strong green influence and was smothered in proliferations

GRYPHON CHINESE FIRE – Gil Stelter 2009.  This cultivar made a lovely clump and was nice and tall – here it is showing a poly bloom

LOVE & DAZZLE – Kathy Lamb 2006.  This was one of my favourite flowers of the day and I hope one day to obtain a piece of it.  A stunner – the clump was beautiful

MALCOLM DAVID BROOKER SNR – Brooker.  Nice edge

PAULA NETTLES – Kinnebrew 2005.  I nearly bought this one when it was introduced but glad I never now as that huge edge would never have opened properly in England – this one needs sun

PIAFFE – Rice 2009.  I LOVE the colours of this one…..I wonder how it would look in UK….

TET DAMSEL IN DISTRESS – this one looked gorgeous in a clump and I could not stop admiring it.  David & Mort must have noticed and gave me a piece as a gift plant – I was over the moon.

VEIL OF SECRECY – Rice 2010.  Beautiful, just look at those markings….

The famous VENUS FLYTRAP – Gossard 2007.  I was so happy to see this one in the flesh – we will never see teeth like that in UK

finally….VIVA PINATA – Gossard 2007.  This one was very eye-catching.

Well, it seems like seedlings will have to wait until tomorrow.  As you can see Daylily World is a treasure trove to visit and it will stay in my memory for years to come.  It was one of my best daylily experiences….ever.

Tomorrow……seedlings of David and Mort’s
