the old, the new, and the fantasy

this is one of the oldies here in the garden.  it goes back to 1948.  the flower that is.  of course the house and therefore the garden goes back a little earlier.  though what the garden looked like back then is anyone’s guess.  there was not much of a flower garden when we moved here.  trees and shrubs yes.  flowers not so much.  so back to the flower.   it is Fantasia a flower by one of the pioneers in daylily hybridizing.  so what has me still interested ?  I can think of three flowers here in the garden that might make an interesting cross.  Fantasia is an open form shaped like a star.  and it has some twist.  and then there is the mystery of what might be hiding in its genetics.  i need to get a gardener’s card that says ‘have pollen, will plant seeds’.  two images
