Background history:

'Highland Pinched Fingers' is a semi-evergreen tetraploid introduced in 1991 by Toll. (I could not find any information on this hybridizer.)

Highland Pinched Fingers is a mid-season bloomer that is a polychrome. It has earned the Honorable Mention 2007 AHS award. It is pod and pollen fertile with 26 children: http://garden.org/plants/parentage/25676/

This plant can be found in the ATP Plant Database at:
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Highland Pinched Fingers') .

Please join in, if you own this plant! We would love to know more! I award an acorn for performance information posted to this thread.





Also, please consider adding a "Local Report" to the ATP Plant Database! Thank you!

Although I do not grow HPF, I have several seedlings from it - is a great parent plant.

This is HPF x Webster's Pink Wonder.

Okay, back on topic now... Rolling my eyes.

Lisa - Your HPF x Webster's Pink Wonder seedling cross is beautiful. I have WPW, but not HPF. If I did .... I would definitely be crossing those two in my own garden (even without seeing what your cross produced). Just beautiful!!! Thumbs up

I gave you an acorn tip (from me personally) because I love seeing seedlings from crosses of two good parent plants.

Those seedlings are NICE ones! You should register. I have WPW and saw a nice clump at a garden back in the summer of HPF. I wish I had purchased it then but I already had several on my list that day. Oh well, one to add for 2016.

HPF, is a very bright bloom that stands out. I planted HPF in 2012 and it has grown into a large clump, I shovled off a 6 or 7 fan piece this spring for a trade, and the clump didn't appear any smaller this summer. There seems to be a high scape denisity, the scapes have been loaded with bee pods, every year I have had it, and it blooms well above the foliage. One of my favorites, I should have nĂºmerous seedlings from it bloom next year, though my pollen marking process didn't work, so will be unknown crosses. I would recommend HPF to anyone who like bright, large blooms.

Yet another one i just got a start of this summer so no info on performance available from me. Had to try this one. I got Firestorm last year and its an excellent grower so i thought another big orange and yellow would be nice to compare.
SO MANY DAYLILYS, SO LITTLE LAND
