|God Save the Queen is one of the best performing daylilies I have. It is very consistent , big blooms hold their color all day, even in the rain. Extremely pod fertile and pollen fertile, very hardy in Zone 6b. I personally feel that this is the very best one Mort Morss has hybridized. I grow around 250 different cultivars and I put this one in the top 10, just outstanding in every way.|

|It's a star in my garden, too. Pod and pollen fertile, a rapid increaser, never a bad bloom.|

|Glad to hear the positive reports as I added three fans this summer....two from Marietta Daylily Gardens and one from a great seller on ebay. I'm hoping for a good show this spring.|

|It is a good performer for me as well, but a difficult pod setter. It only likes certain pollens.|

|GOD SAVE THE QUEEN is very vigorous here, although I haven't seen much in the way of teeth and I haven't really used it in making crosses. It is a reliable bloomer each year, which I certainly can't say for so many of my daylilies.|

|Great Plant!!! Easily pod and pollen fertile. I have numerous keeper seedlings out of this flower. You often hear that you should buy the "best". This is a great one, that is a little older, so the price is not bad. |

|I pulled 8 dead scapes from 'God Save The Queen' this morning. They averaged 32 inches in height, they averaged 3 way branching and averaged 13 buds per scape. No blooms left on her this morning. There were three rebloom scapes that have just bloomed out, and two just getting ready to bloom left on the clump. The clump has grown to 11 fans now and I have had the plant for just over a year, so it has multiplied very well.|

How the plant looked this morning:
The stake is not to support the plant but to hold the cage in place to keep the critters from knocking the cage over and digging up the plant.

Seedfork said:.............., they averaged 3 way branching and averaged 13 buds per branch.........
13 buds per branch? Or 13 buds per scape? At 3 branches with 13 buds each that would be 39 buds and I'm not sure the terminal buds are represented as a branch or are treated separately. I'm a dullard and need clarification. With 3 branches average, 13 buds sounds low even if terminal buds are added on to it. On the other hand 39 buds plus the terminal buds is ranging way up there.

|Thanks, I'll correct that.|

|Okay. I see it was scape. I really didn't know. I don't see really high bud counts on scapes here. I think the most I've ever had occurred this year on 'Navajo Narrative' and it's not registered with a high bud count :). I'm pretty sure my growing conditions will never be such that I will see optimum performance from a plant.|
