I thoroughly enjoy Paul Lewis's website -- very informative. He always has pictures of the most beautiful daylilies, and he has posted three blogs for March. And in this one, about cristates, he has posted some of Char's gorgeous beauties!

Fantastic daylilies, Char -- congratulations!

Thank you Betty. Paul asked me way back in Jan. if I'd send him a few images of my cristates to use in one of his blogs. I'm very happy to see so many others joined in as well. Some great looking cristates on his page, he did a fantastic job! I added a few of the newer ones shown in the blog last year. Crossing Fingers! Hoping they make it through the winter so I can post images this summer.

Char, Thumbs up on the blogspot- you cristate breeders have some good stuff going on! The blooms are very unique! I like the form of Sculpted in Vermont (surface cristation?).

Thank you Diana!
Yes, SIV is a surface cristate coming from both midrib and surface breeding.
Cristate hybridizers are having a lot of fun!!! Thumbs up
