Daylilies Roman Steel, Kniphofia, and Daylily Seedling

Roman Steel
7 x 30 inches
Pierce, G., Fall 2014, SEV, EE 6 branching,
35-40 buds (Cutting Loose x Magical Marrakech)
x Sib to Buffalo Thunder)

This bloom is 7 inches and is pod and pollen
fertile. The bloom is also quite consistent.
Beautiful, my favorite purple!
Mort Morss x God Save the Queen
2015 seedling 6 inches
This blossom is a bit splotchy, but it will be moved to the
 evaluation bed due to the colors and toothy edges. Very
pleased with the bluish eye and border.
Kniphofia Orange Vanilla Popsicle

The orange and cream flower is the one
blooming on the plant when purchased. New scapes
 continue coming up. These may bloom until frost. 
The plant reblooms if the bloom stems are cut
 after the flowers wither. The chartreuse one is a 
happy surprise. I didn't realize we had two in one until it
 bloomed. I think the name is Green Jade. This
one reblooms also. Both have a period of bloom in the 
spring and late summer-fall.

Blue Jay Tapestry and 2016 Daylily Seedling

Blue Jay Tapestry

5.5 x 32, EV EM Rebloom
Pierce, G.--- Fall 2013 ((Blue Beat x Blue Desire) x Tet. Texas
Kaleidoscope) 7 branches, 40-50 buds, fragrant 
Pod/Pollen Fertile
Bloom is smaller than I like, but the colors make up for it as
the colors are amazing.
Evergreen plant did very well after our
below zero winter temps
Born to Be Wild x Polar Dusk
6.25 inches, EMO (Early Morning Opener)

The second bloom on this one, and it has really
improved. The edges and eye show a very
vibrant, lemon-yellow color in person, but not so
much in the photo. The eye zone fades
from a thin raspberry outline to orchid which
repeats in the border. The green throat is 
complemented by a touch of green in the ruffled 
edge. Also, the blossom presents with lemon yellow 
teeth. Overall, I am pleased with this one 
though the midribs are a bit distracting.

Bow Tie Affair And More Daylily Seedlings

Bow Tie Affair
The canoe effect on the petals usually doesn't
appeal to me, but in this case the effect appears
to accentuate the pattern.

2016 Daylily Seedlings

Born to Be Wild Seedling 6.5 inches
Looks much larger in person as it is a rather flat
blossom. Definitely much prettier in person.

These were planted in the ground about 4 months  
ago. That is rapid growth to bloom stage for this 
location. So far, there are 6 plants with scapes.
