I'm looking for two-three patterned dips that would be hardy enough for zone 5a in Waukesha WI.

The one ring looks pretty good- does anyone know how it will do up north? Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

Aside from hardiness, what are you looking for in terms of color, form, size etc?

The One Ring does fine in a pot here. I do get more snow being downwind of Lake Michigan though.

Multiple colors, nothing to particular. I haven't looked that dips that much. I had been collecting tet teeth with 2-4 colors until I discovered the bearded dips. Since I'm getting a few bearded/sculpted cristate lilies I need something that will be pollen fertile that looks awesome and can survive Wisconsin. So uh, here I am. Are there any northern hybriziders that do patterned dips that I can get a better feel? I like carpenters and faulkers dips but concerned about their hardiness. I've seen a few of di caires (sp?) that I really like.

Does that help? I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for.

Di DeCaire's plants are tets for what it is worth though generally hardy. If you are looking for strong breaks in the eye, There are not a lot of northern hybridizers working on them that I'm aware of. Most of Faulkner's should do reasonably well for you, I would suspect Gossard's as well. I have found Salter's plants to be quite hardy here. In fact I would recommend Cosmic Aftershock to you - solid pattern here and performs very well.

You might see if you can find some folks in your area - Sonja Kraft comes to mind - who may grow some of the things you're interested in.

I got Liz Salter's URBAN FANTASY a few year ago. I came back fine for me in the spring and the foliage looked good. Its top branched and budded here. The bloom always looks like this.


Faulkner's , Almira Buffalo Bone Jackson died here then put up another fan a few inches from the original fan.

Wild Dreams died

Gossard's RAINBOW FLOWER does ok. Scapes were kinda thin this past year.
