It would appear that there is a metaphysical twister out there somewhere. and this post got drawn into said twister. now if everyone will just hold on I will try this again…. and if you get lost close your eyes and click your heels together three times. four times if three does not work. now where we ? . . . .
Ada Kansas that isn’t to be precise… it is only fitting that a seedling that traveled from Ada Kansas to Cleveland Ohio have a traveling name – or history. the seedling is a cross of Starman’s Quest and Stargate Portal. if those are not traveling names nothing is. this is the second year for this plant here in the garden. it has grown taller, about 4 feet tall and the branching is pretty good. and the flower size is good, about 6 inches. this year it send up a rebloom scape and that is why it is still blooming. today’s bloom also happens to be a poly. and from what i managed to count it is an odd poly. at least the stamens are an odd count. there are at least 8 petals and sepals. and there may be an extra petal or sepal hiding. though i would rather enjoy the flower and not the destructive counting contest. and there are 9 stamens. and if you look at the macro of the petal you might be able to see where the shadow creates a line where the diamond dusting stops. some daylilies sparkle in the sunshine, aka diamond dusting. so here is the flower. three images. enjoy.
