Generations of patterned daylily breeding lie behind
this daylily yet its name suggests the erratic nature of patterned
breeding where the pattern we see one day may disappear and a new face
appear. Still this is my number one parent for yellow based patterned
flowers for two basic reasons: 1. It generates fabulous patterns on
yellow based flowers and 2. It makes the flattest flowers that
are open right from the throat.
EPHEMERA, itself, has a base color of clean clear
The multifaceted eye is one of a plum mascara eye with a light clear
purple inner zone and a pale charcoal innermost band merging into the
grass green throat. Always flat open EPHEMERA is a joy to work with and
a stunning flower. Fertile both ways.
