Hybridizer was actually Wilma Bryant. She was one of the triumvirate of hybridizers who helped The Central Oklahoma Hemerocalis Society mature into an organization that could host a National Convention.

There were many others who worked tirelessly of course and if I tried to list them all I would slight too many but Wilma, Wilma Marley, and Peggy Estes were the standard bearers from my point of view..

To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan and not quite enough time.

THis is one of my very first daylily! It is very pretty pink in some years. SOme other years, the pink color is a bit washed out. The color and substance last well through the day. Its foliage is not attractive.

I received 2 fans from Karen (kousa) in April 2016. It bloomed for the for first time in May 2017. The foliage looked great! No rust, which is a plus for me!

Here is a photo of the stats:

And in this photo, you can see the sunlight behind it showing the deeper colors:

It produced a number of blooms of which I used both pollen and pod to produce a few seeds.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.
