WATERCOLOR (Stamile,P.) TET 5186-A (Tholian Web x Bit Of Blue) 31”
EERe. emo.nofr. Ev. 5.25” x 2.5” x 1.75”. 5-way branching. 35 buds.
Totally unlike its sib BARCODE with its distinct
bands, MARSEILLES WATERCOLOR always reminds me of a watercolor. The
colors are so soft and seemingly melt into each other so it is
difficult to discern where one color ends and the other begins. The
exception, of course, is the bright fuchsia outer eye band which
repeats onto the edge.
One of the earliest patterned daylilies to bloom in
the garden, MARSEILLES WATERCOLOR displays great floriferousness with
multiple branching and bloom providing terrific color impact.
Like with COSMIC ODYSSEY, I was drawn to MARSEILLES
WATERCOLOR from its first bloom. It was so different from all the other
patterns I was seeing and even as a new seedling demonstrated great bud
count and branching. Fine. Fertile both ways.
