I don't have this one, but it is very unusual and I can see it being in high demand. I really like it!

You rang?

I do have UNDEFINABLE and I believe Michele (@tink3472) and Dot (@Ladylovingdove) do as well. The plant that I received from Nicole was a massive fan with 1 or 2 small side fans that has since divided into 6 fans last I looked. Because I am a northern grower and the spring was warm in the south, mine arrived with a cut scape but as you can see from the picture above, it did rebloom for me.

The blooms are as good as Nicole's pictures suggest. Each is different and the color is very soft - to me it's a keeper for the blooms alone. I'm excited to see what it does next year and to see more seedlings from it. I did not try to set pods on it but it was pollen fertile though a little difficult here. I don't know if that was because of the stress of being shipped or if the plant in general is on the difficult side.

This is one that just does not appeal to me. I have seen a few photos posted on FB too. But I think lots of people will want it.

I have it, and it blooms like the picture Sue posted above, well it did for me. I like the shape of the flower itself, it always has all three petals open, no canoeing, and that is a big plus for me. It also had good substance, which I like.. What set me over, is a picture of one of its offspring. I think Doris (Casshigh) posted it. If not mistaken, it was Undefinable x Bite Like a Thousand Teeth. It was just fantastic.

I got mine late Crying , so I didnt get to try to set pods with its pollen, it was already over 90.. Ive got some pollen frozen tho, so Im ready next year.

We got UNDEFINABLE in April. It is now 6 fans, I think. It made one pod which is enough for a first year plant. The blooms were all different with varying degrees of spotting. All blooms had spotting. I like it and look forward to more blooms next year after getting established. I have not had time to go through pictures taken this summer, but I did take some and will post in the database this winter when I have more time.

Thanks for all the info. I was not expecting this many people to respond, and I am happy that they did as this is a very nice daylily. I will be considering buying it when the price gets a little more reasonable.

I wonder if 'Undefinable' is from 'Augie's Unique Beauty' X a near white or a lavender.

Can't afford it but I do go out occasionally and throw food coloring across my wife's white cosmos. It's a very nice effect. Sticking tongue out

I missed this post. I do have Undefinable and it bloomed very well for me and rebloomed. I used the pollen a lot and got some seeds. Not all pollinations took but I got some seeds which I sold on the Lilyauction. I don't plant seedlings, I don''t have the space or the energy to maintain them. I got a nice single fan and now have 3 fans. I already posted a couple of pictures in the database.

Mine has barely made it thru the summer. I dont know if it was the late arrival or what. Ive got it in the intensive care section. I just dont have the touch.
