Ever see something you don't think you could live without?

Drooling Rolling Raven... Drooling on the bargain table at Region 5 winter meeting tomorrow.

Don't know how to bring the pic here from the database, but here's the db entry so you can check it out if you're not familiar with it.

Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Rolling Raven')

I just told Doris to double the amount I had said she could spend for me, if it will bring that beauty to my home.

Rolling Raven is a good one to have especially for anyone hybridizing. It's extremely pod fertile.

The issue I have with RR is very low bud count of 7 to 10 here in 7A. It is headed to a friend in GA this spring where it may do better.
