2011 Intros

  • Cosmic Cowboy

    Cosmic Cowboy t01ab (Surfing on the Sty x Tie Dyed Moon) 30" tall, M, Dor, 5 1/2" diameter warm rose with multi colored parfait eye pattern of etched dark burgundy, light purple violet, dark charcoal purple and pale maroon. Crisp multicolored chevrons on the sepals really add distinction and flare to the blooms and seem to be a dominant characteristic passed on to its seedlings. Cosmic Cowboy is an essential part of my breeding program for dormant, northern hardy daylilies with distinctively patterned eyes. I use a 5 tool method in evaluating seedlings healthy plant habit, branching and presentation, bloom distinction, consistency and fertility. Cosmic Cowboy is one of those rare 5 tool complete kids, sinfully fertile both ways and generously imparts its good qualities to its seedlings.

  • Grandma Great

    Grandma Great t03S-2 ((Shy Ellen (Concrete Blond x Great White)) 37” tall, M, Dor, 6 ½” dia. Wide 4 way branching hold these huge mother-of pearl white blooms always in a display and never crowded. Not a perfect white as it has soft clear pink and lavender over tones but the iridescent white base makes its beauty gentle and delicate. Each bloom is a perfect copy of each other and float above the rich blue green foliage almost like perfect porcelain art. Grandma Great is not one of these near whites that need a full day of sun to fade into a white impact plant, Grandma Great is as fresh and dazzling at 7 am as it is at 7pm. Elegantly ruffled and displaying a tiny green heart below a radiating yellow sunburst throat blending gently across the flower face. This is a high impact daylily that makes a bold statement in the garden. Named for and by Rita’s mother Winnie, Grandma Great is an introduction I am very proud of. Extremely fertile both ways and a outstanding parent for fancy northern hardy whites with size. $150
