going through the pictures from this summer. there is a quest for blue in daylilies. it does not come easy. and blues, purples, and greys are easily affected by weather and temps. the flower is named Rainbow Maker. perhaps because it fills in a missing color of the spectrum. i am not sure if that is indeed the reason. this picture was taken on a fortunate day. choose your own interpretation of the color azure conscience dictates. or just enjoy it for what it is…

      I agree on both counts. The flower is spectacular and I will continue to be joyfully confused trying to remember just a few of the many many new names. The last couple of years about 2000 were registered each year.

      I try never to argue with a wise man. And I must say your wisdom is well founded. I used the pollen and flowers to make quite a few seeds last year. This year I hardly used it. The crossing tends to go in streaks like that. No matter how pretty a given flower is.
