Hello Daylily Friends,
Another new friend, who also reads my blog, is Robert Coyle from Preston, Minnesota. He came to Athens to visit with his son and his son's fiancee. Then, they drove over here to Marietta from Athens. We were so pleased to meet Bob and his family.
ked the flowers, but alas it was too short. Then, about two weeks ago, it began sending up rebloom scapes that were just wonderful. I took a picture of one of the scapes last week, and the height was 23 inches with 5-way branching. Then, it grew to 24 inches in height, and today I took a picture of the flower. In view of the new statistics, I will probably introduce this flower during 2014. I now identify it as Seedling 2-475 (S-89).
Over the past 10 days I have noticed that it is sending up "rebloom" scapes with much better measurements. It is 24" tall with 4-way branching, 27 buds, and a 7" flower. It has truly a beautiful flower, and I'm pleased that I'm having good success growing 7" flowers. I am just so excited about 8-241 that I am considering using it in the Greenhouse this coming spring to make seeds.
Next spring, with a real winter, I would hope that the blooms and branching on 2-475 (S-89), 8-241, and 11-270 will all be even more beautiful and attractive to the members of AHS.
