Curt Hanson's Crintonic Garden Catalog said: CAPACITY FOR WONDER
01 ML 36 SE
ALPHA CENTAURI X PHAZERS ON STUN
As one of the most universally admired flowers in the garden, CAPACITY FOR WONDER sublimely exalts the classic appeal of the yellow daylily. This glowing fusion of golden hues is most succinctly pronounced with an effusive and lush green throat emanating well out onto the petals. A delicate violet pink midrib and soft cameo blush adds to the overall tropical panache. The flatly formed 6” symmetrical and triangular flowers gently reflex with delicate ruffles and fringe. The erect and stately scapes display well spaced three and four-way branching. Greatly indebted to the work of Brother Charles and a favorite of Jeff Salter. Pollen fertile.
