Several of you have inquired about my avatar photo over the years, and I finally registered that seedling in 2018. It's called Dearest Valentine and I have some divisions available for sale on the Lily Auction.

Dearest Valentine (Zimmerman 2018) dor. tet. with 6 inch blooms on 25 inch scapes. 16 buds. A cerise rose pink in my climate, with cooler night temps it can look cerise rose red. It has a yellow to green throat and a cream/gold edge. This daylily starts blooming in midseason and continues until very late. A reliable rebloomer, some years I get three cycles of bloom. It's also an excellent multiplier. Pod and pollen fertile.

Here are a few of its looks over the years:




Here is the color after a night temp of 60 degrees.

Thanks everyone! I've registered two others in the past and will probably register three or four more later this year, but Dearest Valentine is my favorite. It's named in honor of my husband, who has been my dearest valentine for the past 35 years.

Barb - I don't know for sure how it would do in your area. I would expect it has the same type of dormancy as its parent, Shores of Time, which does flourish in Florida.
