Daylily Cosmic Adventure

---Cosmic Adventure---
Pierce-G., reg. 2013 (sdlg x Tet. Cosmic Kaleidoscope)
6 x 35 in., EM, RE, EV, Fragrant, 40 buds, 6 branches

Being new this year, this one took a bit of time to settle
in, but once it did the flowers improved with each
Fertile both ways.

Daylily Born to Be Wild

---Born to Be Wild---
6.5 x 32 inches
fast to increase here

Pierce-G., reg. 2011, EM, RE, SEV, 30 buds, 6 br.

Wildfire [sib to Raspberry Mountain]) x Fringy)

Hybridizer's website lists the cross as
(((Calling All Angels x Sue Brown) x Mountain

Fertile both ways, and possibly the most
fertile plant in the garden. We have BTBW
seedlings from experimental crosses. Anxious
to see what develops from those.
