With my temps hanging in the upper 70's low 80's the daylilies are responding well.

The first time I saw this one it was posted by Doris (Casshigh), and I knew I had to have it..

Lyle, we LOVE Lady Duck! The substance is something else. Every bloom is a good bloom. It has been a very good parent for hybridizer Don Eller. He has had at least 3 Junior Citation winners out of LD. Our first seedlings from LD will bloom this coming summer. Glad to see you have blooms in December. We have scapes but am cutting them off as I find them. They are deformed from the 24 degrees we had early last week.

OK, you've convinced me that I need to get LADY DUCK -- plus when I looked at the incredible 2013's on the Ellers' website it seemed like I saw that name a lot in the listed parentage of those gorgeous intros. And I love your seedling too! It's going down to the 60's here now, plus my last bud on FIESTA FLIRT has now opened and I collected pollen to freeze, so I guess I'm done for 2012 -- although I do have scapes coming along on RED CHILE RENDEZVOUS, BLISSFUL BLACKBERRY PIE and another on FIESTA FLIRT. Your blooms are absolutely beautiful!!!
