We grow thousands of daylilies and a favorite of garden visitors is Heavenly Dragon Fire. It is a tet but just indicates that vivid orange flowers draw attention.
I hybridize dips primarily and most of the orange ones that I grow are blends.
In my hybridizing, I want to try:
to create an orange with a black eye
to create an orange with a white watermark
We do like our orange!
You have to get some flowers to work with and then it just takes time. I think there are more vivid orange tets than dips but I have collected a variety of dips. Also, it is not that difficult to take a double and create single blooms.
