|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.|
