"Single Fans for $300.00. For $500.00 I will provide a 50% Bonus as well"
What does that mean, "I will provide a 50% Bonus as well" ?

I take it to mean that if you buy 500...you get a 250 bonus along with it. Confused

I did not find a plant 'All Hail The Bold Ruler' were you meaning 'Master & Bold Ruler'?
The description of it sounds so nice, maybe in 15 years or so it will be in my garden.
I have never heard a daylily described as being strong enough to push it's petals open no matter what is in the way, that would really be unique!

I don't have any such funds for this promising cultivar. I can't help but wonder how it would do in my zone and climate. Sounds intriguing to say the least. Blinking

This last late June, I wanted to buy Jurassic Pink for a friend who has everything that he wants, but not Jurassic Pink.

I called Floyd Cove and talked to a most pleasant woman who explained to me that they were no longer shipping because of the heat.

I told her the story and that my friend's birthday was in July. She said she would see what she could do. I ordered two double fans, $100 total, plus $20 shipping.

I certainly was not expecting a gift. This pleasant woman who helped me surprise my friend, also sent me an $150 new introduction, Guy's Grand Illusion.

For this reason, I will be calling them within the next few hours with credit card in hand, and I will be ordering ...

Charlotte's Desire
Jag
Thunder Glow
and whatever mesmerizes me.

I called Guy at 6:30 this morning as he was getting out of bed and did not have any coffee as yet. We discussed how they select bonuses from the customer's wish list. He suggest I make a very long list in order of preference.

Read my email, please.

Dear Guy and Karen,

I am ordering partially to honor Karen for her pleasant and generous way with me this last June. Thank you.

I hope Guy did not mind that I called so early. It was very late last night when I found out that your introductions for 2017 were posted.

My order ....

Master & Bold Ruler

Oh goodness! Looks like a wonderful order already without the bonus plants included. Can't wait to see your bloom photos in the Spring/Summer of 2017! Big Grin

Love the name Emerald Tarantula. Sound like you are going to have some nice ones blooming next year, Gerry.

Wow, Matter and Bold Ruler is the first one I have seen in recent months that I would have been willing to drop $100-200 on, but unfortunately not for a single fan, I don't think. But 11" blooms with thick petals, saturated red color, and great branching?... Drooling

Sadly, yellow edges aren't a draw for me at all, atleast not right now, but perhaps crosses with my white-toothed tet..... Rolling my eyes. Maybe next year....

I'm still at the point that a $30 daylily scares the crap outta me... *gulp* what-if-I-somehow-kill-it???

I guess I just haven't fell in love with one that deeply to risk the price of investment for the reward of the genes.... Okay, that's a fib... I'd gladly spend someone else's money on a few of Floyd's 2017 intros... Whistling
