I got word from Kevin Walek, that unless the unforeseen happens, I have been approved for my second registered daylily
Moon Girl (Edge of Heaven x Techny Spider) 5.5 x 27, 3 way branching with an average of 25 buds, M, Dor, easy fertility both ways, and it will rebloom in the right conditions
I think that Moon Girl is the best pure polychrome I grow, even over some of the Reckamps that steered me into my main goal of what I call Reckamp glow

Such delicacy in a wonderfully enchanting frame! Someday I may have to break my "no-dormants" rule in my 9b garden for this one ... Lovey dubby

Did you already have the name MOON GIRL reserved, or did it just happen to be available now? I love the name!

Hilarious! I agree Debra! My favorites have always been pink. There is just something special about the blend of colors on this one! Even if I hated pink, I don't see any way that I wouldn't love this one!

Thanks everyone
Betja Betty the name "Moon Girl" wasn't reserved, in fact it was my second choice.
I wanted to name it "You Glow Girl" but that wasn't in the cards.

The first polychrome I ever saw in bloom was back in 1999, Reckamps "Techny Peace"
I have been working towards this goal ever since.
I'm attempting to create what I like to call Reckamp glow with an attitude.
