|Omomuki is one of the oldest plants in my garden. It came here in 1998---only seven years after it's intro. The price had come down to $10.00/DF because it is a strong grower that multiplies it's fans exponentially. It is still here---and will be here for a long time. It's only flaw is that the flowers always have that crape texture that has since been bred out of the daylilies because of increased substance. I still use it for breeding because it does not pass on that trait---and it is a fairly reliable seed-maker.

Seems like only time I like the crepe texture is with a lemon yellow, probably because yellows tend to be the best openers and the most sun-resistant. Many of the Munson cream-pinks and melon-toned flowers had it, but coming off a cool night they were thin, rumpled, sad-looking flowers. I think it adds interest to the petal surface, but usually at a price. Imperial Lemon and Lion Dance have that texture and finish, but have the substance to pull it off. They're two of the old-guard "pure lemon yellows" which I still grow.
