The first time I saw a flower like LACY BORDER was
15 years ago. Ed Brown was showing pictures of small yellow daylilies
from RUFFLED MASTERPIECE with incredibly wide, ruffled edges on the
petals and ruffling on the sepals as well. There simply was nothing
like that kind of ruffling in the tets at that time. Oh, there was the
“DBD” type ruffling but nothing flat that seemed to cover the face of
the flower with ruffling rather than gathering ornately at the edge.
Fast forward 15 years and a grandchild from Tetra RUFFLED MASTERPIECE
is giving the same effect, only this time it is in a 6” flower rather
than a 4 ½” flower.
LACY BORDER is a cream with a green gold edge that
always opens flat and early in the morning. Excellent plant balance and
plant habit make this one stunning daylily. Fertile both ways.
