This is simply our best lavender to date. The base
color on first bloom scapes is a clear mauve lavender with a blue
lavender eye and blue lavender edge supra-edged in gold (as pictured).
On rebloom flowers become clear pure lavender as the pink dissipates
and three rings of color boldly dominate the edge-purple, blue lavender
and gold. Moreover, the white base rather than a yellow, melon or beige
base becomes increasingly apparent on rebloom. Also on rebloom the
flowers appear somewhat of a blue eyed bitone with the sepals appearing
as a light lavender while the petals appear as darker lavender. Ain’t
daylilies wonderful! Two similar but very different flowers for the
price of one.
Whatever you are breeding for, huge lavenders, blue
eyes or simply want a cool lavender for the garden, this is a great
flower. Fertile both ways.
