I should note that spiders can be registered as large flowers. I learned this at our last daylily show. My friend Claude Carpenter entered what I would have thought was a spider, but indeed, the hybridizer had registered the flower as a large flower. That is, a flower larger than 7 inches. WALT LOWRY is between 10 and 11 inches, and the scape is over 40 inches tall. At our show next year I may enter WALT LOWRY as a large flower.
We're going to the AHS National Convention in Ohio this coming week. It will be good to see many friends again.
