SILK (Pierce, G.) TET 8305 C (Pink Cavalcade x Priscilla’s Smile)
32” EMre. Fr. Ev. 6 ½” 7 way branching, 40 buds.
The first time I saw real green in the edging of a
daylily was on the beautiful Priscilla’s Smile. I loved the way
the green would bulge out of the next day’s buds. I took it
everywhere, and out of several grand keepers came Diamond Silk. A
clear light orchid self, with over 4 inch ruffled petals and a wide
gold to green edging. An absolute gem to the eyes, covered in
brilliant diamond dusting, with the green from the throat flowing out
to match the edge. Multiple proliferations have allowed me
to introduce this flower early, and the first of many introductions
from Pink Cavalcade. Thank you Dan. Fertile both ways.
