*NANCY BILLINGSLEA


*NANCY  BILLINGSLEA (Stamile, P.) TET 1232-D [(San Ignacio x Ed Brown) X Tetra Grace Pierce] 30 EERe. Ev. fr. emo. 7 ½ x 4 x3. 6-way branching. 25-30 buds.  NANCY BILLINGSLEA is named for the wife of a friend and tireless worker for the American Hemerocallis Society, Oliver Billingslea.  Size counts!! And NANCY BILLINGSLEA  is easily the largest of the triumvirate of RUFFLED MASTERWORK, SONGWRITER and NANCY BILLINGSLEA. In fact, with petals of 4 and early flowers at 8 this is one of the largest of the hundreds of Tetra Grace Pierce seedlings I have bloomed.  Best of all NANCY BILLINGSLEA is one of the most beautiful shades of pink. Anyone who knows me knows I am very fussy about pink color. It is a remarkable achievement to bring size, color, form and plant habit together in one flower. Simply gorgeous. Fertile both ways.
