What Tetra TERRY LYNINGER did to the appliqué
throats Tetra PEPPERMINT DELIGHT has done for large eyes on large
flowers. Thank you to Jack Carpenter for creating two wonderous
diploids which when converted are revolutionizing the world of
BART ROBERTS is a very large orchid rose with a huge
velvety blue red eye. In both clarity and vibrancy of color I know of
no other eyed daylily with such color presence. BART was used
extensively this May to capture the bold saturation of colors. We will
see next year what this will bring.
Siblings to BART ROBERTS also had prominent white
sharks teeth outside the red border so I expect BART ROBERTS may be
useful in structural edges as well as borders. Fertile both ways.
