*LAKE EFFECT (Stamile,P.) TET 5328-B
(Druids Chant x Big Blue) 23 Mla.Dor.fr.EMO. 7¼ x 4 x 2½.
4-5 way branching. 25-30 buds. LAKE EFFECT sib to the
magnificent KNIGHTS IN WHITE SATIN and the superb lavender MAGIC AMETHYST,
was hands down one of the most popular daylilies in the garden. This
huge flower, which can be almost 8 on first flowers, is a gorgeous shade
of mauve purple with a blue-gray lavender eye and dual edges of blue-gray
lavender and cream white. The throat shades from chartreuse white
on the outer edges to olive green in the center. Surprisingly, while
it breeds eyes if crossed to an eye LAKE EFFECT the darkest of the 3 sibs
tends to throw the most exquisite, beautifully formed, deeply scalloped
ruffled white edged pinks! LAKE EFFECT is also in the background of some
triple edges showing up. Outstanding. Fertile both ways.
