Thanks to all who encouraged me to register ICE CRYSTAL. You have been putting up with my photos for three years now. It is now official. This is as white as any daylily I grow and I grow a lot of near white daylilies. It is heavily ruffled, and I love the fact that the sepals also show ruffling. Thanks to Dot for naming it.

Hey everybody! Thanks so very much for taking the time to leave such nice comments. It is a very special daylily of which I am proud.

Julie, you asked for stats. Here ya' go. Height: 26-28", bloom: 5-5.5", ev, EM, 3 branches, bud count: 20, fragrant. It grows very well in my zone 7A, is pod and pollen fertile, and increases nicely. I cannot give your parentage. A few years ago I was shelling daylily seeds and kept a cup nearby to put the culls, the ones that had nothing inside and the ones that I felt were too soft to sell. One day I grabbed a handful of these culls and took them to a flower pot on the deck and planted them. Ice Crystal is a result of one of those seeds. It makes me wonder about the others I culled.

Gorgeous white daylily, Ann, and a gorgeous name. I especially love the
ruffled sepals too. Beautiful form and wide ruffled petals. It's a winner for sure with a lovely story about it as well. Congratulations. Hurray! I tip my hat to you.
