Violet Becomes You
*Violet Becomes You

*VIOLET BECOMES YOU (Stamile,P.) TET 4177-F (Woodie Guthrie x Roses And Gold) 31” EMRe. emo. Ev. 6.5” x 3.5” x 1.75”. 4-way branching (2 laterals + terminal “y”). 25 buds.
    When selecting a purple I naturally prefer the more violet shades as opposed to the more purple tones. The deeper, richer and clearer the color, the more attractive it is to my eye. VIOLET BECOMES YOU is one of the best in this regard, a deep rich vibrant violet with a bright gold edge.
    Though making a large tall plant, VIOLET BECOMES YOU is much like its pod parent and very vigorous. If you grow one purple for hybridizing this would be the one I would recommend. It has been the mainstay of our purple breeding program. There were more selections from VIOLET BECOMES YOU than any other purple last year. If you want purples with large gold, yellow or orange edges and great substance I would highly recommend VIOLET BECOMES YOU. If, however, you prefer green edges on your purples I would recommend GREEN REVOLUTION as VIOLET BECOMES YOU produced only a few green edges and only when crossed to green edges.
    Also making VIOLET BECOMES YOU a great parent is its ease of fertility. Of all the purples I have done it may be my easiest purple pod parent. CELESTIAL SHORE would be a close second.
    Well liked and admired in the garden and an exceptionally fine daylily. Easily fertile both ways.
