Share your photos this week, and keep watch on the photos that get shared by others. Give thumbs to the ones you like, and participate in our Daylilies forum. At the end of the week, I'll give a report of the best images and the most active members. Each member featured in that report will be awarded the Celebrating Gardening: 2015 Microbadge! You can always see the latest Daylilies photos by going to the ATP homepage and you'll see the latest pictures right below the articles.
Now, let's see the most popular daylily cultivars in our database. Well, really the most popular? I'm not sure but we can only make guesses based on how many different people post comments, images, growers reports, and so forth. So really this is a look at the most active entries in our daylilies database. Okay, let's have a look.
Curt Hanson's Crintonic Garden Catalog said:BELA LUGOSI
95 M 33 SE
((BLACKWATCH sdlg: parent of ETRUSCAN TOMB, VELVET UNDERGROUND, GOLLUM, SATANIC MAJESTY) x NAIROBI NIGHT) x tet GRAND MASTERPIECE
The last of the original tet GRAND MASTERPIECE progeny to bloom, and possibly my finest purple to date, BELA LUGOSI inherits its clarity and depth of color from the BLACKWATCH grandparent which has been a cornerstone in my work with purple. The flower is a true self, devoid of any lighter watermark or deeper eyezone that could detract from the emphasis on pure color—which is a rich, true burgundy purple, enhanced by an exceptionally smooth velvet-like finish and soft lemon-lime throat. Overall form is very full, wide and gently reflexed, with an air of dignity. The petals are graced by deep undulating ruffles. Substance is very heavy and the flower opens well even after cool nights. The stately scapes are tall and erect, with well-spaced three and four-way branching. BELA LUGOSI is fertile either way, and is emerging as a parent of extraordinary merit. HM 99, AM 01, Lenington 07
