*LAVENDER HEARTTHROB


*LAVENDER HEARTTHROB (Stamile,P.) TET 9272-B (Magic Amethyst x Debussy) (22 EERe. fr. emo. dor.  7 x 3 5/8 x 2.   5-way branching. (3 + terminal y)  28-30 buds.   Every hybridizer secretly dreams of having a flower with the performance of STELLA DE ORO in the North.  A flower that would be hardy everywhere and would continually bloom throughout the bloom season.  Such a flower would start early and would have enough nocturnal blood that it would open even in the cool nights and would have all the bells and whistles of the finest in the new edged varieties.
    LAVENDER HEARTTHROB comes as close to that picture as I have been able to do.  It is one of the first 5 daylilies to bloom in the garden and blooms without resting for 4 more rebloom sets in Florida.  The flowers are huge and in my opinion the cleanest, clearest lavender that I have since LAVENDER MEMORIES.Unlike LAVENDER MEMORIES, LAVENDER HEARTTHROB is wide and full and has a huge braided gold edge.
    An imperative for the hybridizer wishing to incorporate continuous bloom, clear color or dormancy in the gold edges.  A great daylily.  Fertile both ways.$150.00
