MOUNTAINS (Stamile,P.) TET 5202 [(Ageless Beauty x Zahadoom) X Bit Of
Blue] 24” MRe. emo. Ev. 4.25” x 3” x 1.875”. 4-way branching (1 lateral
+ terminal “w”). 20-25 buds.
This is the first sculpted blue eye that I have
seen. The lavender navy eye is ribbed and raised and these “blue
mountains” radiate out from a grass green throat. The midrib is also
raised but in a contrasting orchid violet color. The fine wire edge is
actually made up of three very fine bands of silver lavender, blue
lavender and deep 28-30 buds.
I don’t know where a flower like this will take us.
No doubt this will be taken to the exceptionally sculpted flowers like
BAS RELIEF to explore the nuances of sculpting in colors other than
melon and gold. For others, like myself, I will continue to explore
patterns and all the intricacies the daylily is capable of.
Pollen is nearly white on first flowers but becomes
increasingly more yellow and more fertile with each successive bloom.
Weak pollen but useable, pod fertile. Distinct.
