bi-tone

some daylilies have one set of petal one color and another set of petals another color.  usually it is obvious like one set white and the other pink or purple.  this one is not so obvious still it does the same thing.  one set of petals is a blue grey, the other a pink grey.  not a color combination one expects in the garden.  still it happens.  two images…

      It is a bit odd looking. Now if I can figure out where it is and if it has been flagged I will be much happier. Pretty sure it is in the ‘move this spring’ seedling bed. It has some interesting things going on. No sense worrying about it till the snow melts…. Glad you enjoy Dan !

        This snow or that snow ? I can tell you a brief story about a daylily grower, a known and unlost plant and a warm green house. It involves an ax and winter time extraction theory. The daylily and the extractor both survived and the daylily made the smooth transition to a warm green house. No it was not me who done the extracting… Stay warm Dan !

      Ah but how to get it across the pond ? ! ? There are several similar. Most notably one called Grey Witch. And Grey Witch does happen to be on your side of the pond…
      Glad you enjoy the flower.

    Believe it or not there are some that don’t excite me so much. Though I will not say that about this one. I find the color different and like that kind of variety in the garden. Besides this one clumps up fast and provides a very nice display during the growing season. Even in my crowded garden where otherwise good growers slow down a bit because of the crowding. Go with the variety and enjoy the ones you like Hilary. 😉
