Background history:

'Mister Mayor' is a dormant tetraploid introduced in 2014 by Judy Davisson. Judy is also known as "Davi" here on ATP! Check out her website for more of her beautiful daylily creations:

A wonderful interview with Judy can be viewed here: http://hemaholicsanonymous.blo...... as well as this short video:

Juli started a thread about Judy Davisson: The thread "ATP Series: The Daylilies of Judy Davisson" in Daylilies forum

Mister Mayor is a mid-season bloomer with possible instant re-bloom. It is listed as pod and pollen fertile.

This plant can be found in the NGA Plant Database at:
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Mister Mayor') .

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 NGA Plant Database! Thank you!

Another of my favorites! A completely sunfast, strikingly watermarked deep purple that never melts no matter how hot it is outside. In my garden, it is extremely showy and is very fertile both ways. I will bloom my first seedlings out of this one next season. With superstar parents like WHITE EYES PINK DRAGON and CURT'S GIFT, how can you go wrong with this one?

MISTER MAYOR is a lovely cultivar, and is an easy pod setter. My kind of colors and watermarks to be sure, from the wonderful world of Davi!! Gets me dreaming about the 2017 collection?? I can feel the shakes starting! Rolling on the floor laughing

Yes the parents of Mister Mayor are indeed superior daylilies this one has the watermarks set off by the purple color. This one is another that stops me in my track to admire it's luscious beauty every time I walk the garden when it is in bloom.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!
