'Zelazny' is on the wish list. How trumpet shaped is it from a side view? All the photos I've ever seen make me think it's moderate, not really deep and not really flat. However, I haven't seen a photo from the side to really know.

Donald, you are correct. Stays trumpty on cool mornings but opens well by mid day. Keeps a little depth to it. Rarely lays out flat- only remember once- extremely hot day. I will try to add a side shot this summer.
Love what you teach and teach what you love!

Thank you Lisa. Might be flatter here most of the time. 'Cool' and 'summer in Texas' in the same sentence is an oxymoron.

Lilydaydreamer,
Thanks for posting your beautiful picture of 'Zagora', that is my only "Z". I planted it this past summer and I can barely wait for it to make a beautiful clump like yours.

Larry, she is worth the wait. She does pout when moved but bounces back. I love her enough that I have tried to hybridize with her . . . stubborn pod parent. One day I pollinated EVERY open bloom (30ish) and they all took!!! I was offering everyone seeds from that cross. Rolling on the floor laughing Of those that I kept and have bloomed, they look very much like mama. Was hoping they would add daddy's size and teeth ( a toothy yellow seedling from mike Holmes). Crossing sibs to see if that works.
Love what you teach and teach what you love!

I sure like Zelazny in your photos, Mike. I'm eyeing a potential source, but I have to control the numbers I acquire off that wish list. It's really gotten harder than you'd think for a daylily to make that list. As tempting as they are, the list gets unreasonable pretty fast and in terms of numbers I can reasonably grow here, it's already unreasonable. I'm beginning to memorize some that aren't on the list and every time I see a photo wonder why they aren't on the list. Usually a matter of the height not falling into the parameters I've set. For now, something needs to be on the list for me to consider a purchase. If not this year, then maybe another for Zelazny.

What a gorgeous clump of Zagora! Like the big green throat on Zelazny.

Only one "Z" here and it's been shown a few times already.....



Another oldie but goodie, very distinctive with the red chevron and veining, white midrib and the rippled edge on the petals and sepals.

I tip my hat to you. to everyone, the daylily alphabet was the perfect way to get through the long month of January!
