In regards to his diploid "It's A Whopper", I couldn't find "Cup Overflows" in the database. I am guessing that it's a typo that meant "My Cup Overflows" as the pollen parent.

I'm sure you're right, Mike, and I also noticed some typos in the descriptions of these intros. The ones that caused a giggle, though, are in the description of BEYOND ULTRA VIOLET -- although the words they ended up with seem pretty appropriate for that picture! Hilarious!

Betty, thank you for pointing out the humorous typo on Beyond Ultra Violet. Priceless. Do like their flowers, though.

Me too! And thank heavens for Amazing_daylilies on the Lily Auction, eh? That's the only way they're affordable to me, although I do have to wait a while -- sometimes a long while! But good things are worth waiting for...

I just got, 'Just Dance' for 25.25. The LA is the way to go, I agree with Betty for sure. Betty, I dont know who you are on the LA.

I just went and looked at the new intros, I picked two must have. One was 250...the other 225. Ummmm must not haves....Ill sure be looking for them this time next year tho.

I also won 'Master at Work' today. I took a picture of it at the Petits 3 years ago, before it was introduced. Couldnt afford it until now, but i got it for 32.50. It was a long wait

I won three of Pete's 2014 intros on the auction for a lot less than he has them on his web site, plus all were triple fans. I have never been disappointed with anything I have received from Amazing Daylilies.

Pam - Pete Harry - gave a presentation to the Nor Cal group (a region 7 club in Northern California) and the club president a good friend Jeff Corbett told me about some of the offerings by Pete Harry, so I called and told him to put me on the list, since this one will be gone soon. He (Pete Harry) told me he didn't have hard copy on the daylily at the time, but he would send it, as long as I knew the name was pending.. He also said Pete's Electric Blue Beauty was the best daylily he has done to date, and went on to say it was the best he has seen.

The photo was taken by Pete, to show me what the daylily looked like, he used the same photo (without the background) on his site.

CHARLES IN CHARGE - should be another good daylily for large blooms and bold eye, and edges.

PETE'S ELECTRIC BLUE BEAUTY is by far my favorite, but I also like CHARLES IN CHARGE. Pete will be speaking to our local daylily club in March and will be bringing daylilies to auction!
