This past spring when Diana and I attended the AHS National Convention in Valdosta, Georgia, I was particularly pleased to see our PASTOR LAURIE ANN MOELLER growing in a number of gardens. PASTOR MOELLER is beautiful, and is a 7" flower when it first blooms. I registered it as a semi-evergreen, but from a number of years of training, I now see that it is a "dormant." It is also a lovely daylily, and always looks beautiful in the garden. It was in position 77 on the Honorable Mention chart, and was selected by four separate regions. I was also pleased to see that one of my first introductions, DIANA'S PINK GOWN, was in position 90, and was also selected by four separate regions.
Thanks to everyone who voted for KENNESAW MOUNTAIN HAYRIDE, PASTOR LAURIE ANN MOELLER, and DIANA'S PINK GOWN.
Change of subject to my current work on a few conversions. I am showing three pictures, and these are of MIXED BERRY JAM, MIMOSA UMBRELLA, and ROSABELLE VAN VALKENBURGH. I am not sure whether I should cut these conversions. As you can see from looking at each of the three plants, they all show the effects of being treated with Coltricine. The biggest of the three is MIXED BERRY JAM. It is growing so well with no sign of disease. I am inclined to cut into it to keep the growing tip emerging. I have never been able to convert MIMOSA UMBRELLA, but this time I think I have made progress. I am not inclined to cut this daylily because it seems that the area is open for the growing tip to emerge. Finally, I am inclined to cut ROSABELLE. She is so "cupped" that she just seems to plead for an opening cut for her growing tip to grow. Looking foward to any replies that anyone might have. I would like to have replies within 24 to 48 hours.
