variety

some flowers are big.  some are not.  some flowers have a strong clear color.  some do not.  some might say i am trying to set the stage for big flowers with a strong clear color.  i am not.  there is room for both.  there is room for a multitude of variety.  some of this variety has yet to be encountered.  and when we do encounter it we will struggle for words to describe it.  tonight’s flower is small.  its color is bi-tone.  the petals are a reddish color and the sepals behind them are yellowish.  and i say reddish because the color is mottled.  it is not a solid red.  it is uneven and varied.  the cross would not lead you to expect this result.  it is from Nutmeg Elf a small solid yellow and Rococo another small size yellow.  and there are all sorts of seedlings similar to this that other hybridizers are working to get mottled, freckled, speckled, streaked, and other variations of uneven unsymmetrical random color patterns.  the face of the daylily keeps changing.  three images…
