    Cynthia – once you start looking for it you will see most of the daylily blooms repeat this behavior. Loosely speaking the color pattern on the stamen repeat what is going on in the petals. glad you enjoy the flower ! Thanks !

    Beautiful flowers. I love the colours. I don’t think flowers have egos 🙂 That would take away my pleasure of looking at them.

      Nicola. I don’t want to take away your enjoyment of the flowers. If the ego thing gets in the way let’s just leave it out of the discussion. There are more ways than one to discuss and share flowers. That was just a starting point and the conversation can go many ways. Thanks!
