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
