Sibling to SHORES OF TIME. 24” ERe. vfr. emo. ext. Ev. 5” x 3” x 2”.
3-way branching. 21 buds. They’re here! The first flowers where the edge
could be called green rather than chartreuse. LESLIE RENEE, named for the
daughter of our California friend Sue Brown, is a breakthrough. It
is rare in the world of daylilies that we get a new color into some aspect
of the daylily. In LESLIE RENEE we have a waxy chartreuse green edge for
the first time. Moreover, being a pink LESLIE RENEE has been paramount
for getting green edges into creams, pinks, roses and lavenders. I see
no reason why it could not be taken into reds and purples as well.
the early gold edges where everything crossed to a gold edge meant losing
the edge, the green edges are likely to be much more productive. Fully
30? of the seedlings crossed to LESLIE RENEE had green edges.
been tremendously exciting to walk the LESLIE RENEE seedlings. Everyone
seems a winner. You see one that is fabulous only to walk a little farther
and see one even better. Just a fabulous pod parent, it will even makes
pods from difficult pollen like TET CONNIE BURTON and TET RUFFLED MASTERPIECE.
Easily fertile both ways. An outstanding daylily.
