I have only one bitone daylily cultivar in my gardens, 'Frans Hals', and bitones really 'speak' to me! Thumbs up I would love to see some of you're favorites, gang, so I can put some on my "Want" list! Whistling Whistling Smiling

A NOID that goes by the garden name Golden Eye Pink. I do not know if it qualifies, but it strikes me as a bitone

I don't grow any of these myself, but they all caught my attention after being posting in the August 2017 thread.

I have a soft spot for bitones, and have added several over the past year or so.

Final Touch is one of my favorites:

@gardenglory
Pam, just find the BB code on a database photo and then copy that code including the brackets on each end and paste in a message. I just arbitrarily selected this one to copy and paste.

After purple minis, bi-tones are my next/second favourites, I like Pony but it just is not happy in Yorkshire and only flowers every other year.

Two I have are new this year so will have to show the seller's pics:

@touchofsky

Thanks Valerie,

Already planing ahead to decide what to cross with purple pinwheel and the pinwheel seedling next year. I want to try and get a couple of purple pinwheel x aquamarine pods next year, the only one I had this year looked to be doing okay but then deflated after about 4 weeks.

Would love to get Aquamarine's lovely cool blue/lavender shade on a 'littly' if poss! Have three pods of Star Child x Aquamarine still looking okay so far-- about 4-5 weeks old now.

Wondering whether to try one or both with Honky Tonk Blues and will prob. try them with Star Child too. Everything else pretty much depends upon new ones flowering. Oh, almost forgot about Baby Blues, do you think I should try crossing her with one of these?

The ones I really hope flower next year are Ledgewood Calico Blues, Little Sea Sprite, Little Trooper and Elfin Illusion. Oh, and Child of Fortune and, and, and..... Rolling on the floor laughing

Now I'm feeling bad that I haven't mentioned any of my orange, red, yellow ones!

Tried to get pods on Patchwork Puzzle but was working under the illusion that it is a tet (on the ahs and sellers sites)-- noticed however all its child plants are dips. so will try it with dips next year.

Edited --just talking about Aquamarine and realized that Inever mentioned her in the original post-think she would be classed as bitone. Colour is quite pink in the picture, in real life she is a very clear lavender and bright white (not ivory or cream-proper white).
