This is a great hem. In my garden, it's always a med/dark rose colour. It shows no rust. It bloomed early, then before the last buds finished it shot up another scape. Opens perfectly and lasts well in the sun. Also does fairly well in very heavy rain.

In my garden OS is a glowing golden yellow. And it has beautiful velvety substance. Outstanding. It can sometimes do petaloids and polys.

The lavender part of the double edge is definitely lavender. Maybe slightly greyish lavender. The bloom is also a bluish pink. It looks wonderful from a short distance. Nice substance. Not fully open until after midday but still looking great in the evening. Our very mild weather and copious watering are no doubt helping all that. Here it is wonderful to have blooms before the spring equinox. It is in part shade.

Today I had FFE of PJ. It is a bit fragrant, and has a gold or copper edge on petal and sepals. The throat is gold then green. No sign at all of a red/dark pink halo/eyezone.

NGA and AHS both show the daylily FUGUE as having pod parent Tet Fugue. Also the NGA database for offspring of FUGUE shows FUGUE as one. Seems there has been an error in the registration record???

I wonder now if the round was very dry last year before my MAS appeared to disappear for a couple of weeks. Because it has done it again recently. Rain was often forecast so I ended up not watering some daylilies much. I again feared that MAS had died. Others near it still had leaves although a bit wilted. Recently I began giving plants a good soaking every week as it was still hot and quite windy. Fortunately a few days ago leaves reappeared on MAS.

A grand parent of BWW, 'Indiahouse' is shown as a Dip. Wonder if that is correct as BWW and the other 2 ancestors are Tets.

I was researching the ancestry of DOUBLE SUNSHINE registered as a Brown cultivar 1974. However, its registered date seems wrong given the later dates 1988 1986 and 1977 that are given for registration of its ancestors as per NGA pages and the AHS site.

Although registered as Semi Evergreen, MARCIA FAY has consistently been completely deciduous in my subtropical, southern hemisphere garden for the last 3 years. It dies back completely in June. After only a couple of weeks new leaves appear. This seems to be independent of the weather.

Is it the case that there have been not registered offspring of Hemerocallis citrina?? Given its reputed fragrance that seems strange. Is it infertile??

I thought I had lost MAKING A SPLASH, but it must be deciduous here in sub tropical Australia. Under my pine needle mulch I just found some healthy grey green knobs about to burst into leaf. I am glad as it is stunning.

It is surprising that PINK AMBROSIA is rated 5.0 for rust. The pod parent is rated 1.0, as is a parent of the pollen parent. I guess one has to try lots of crosses of rust resistant plants.

I am delighted to have SPACECOAST RUFFLES sport a lovely double. First time for me, although another member farther north (slightly closer to the equator) tells me his doubles on rebloom . Mine had buds sitting on it since February. I thought they might just not open. It gets rust in my garden, but it is so beautiful in form, colour, and substance that I have just kept ripping off leaves.
