twisted

the flower is Predictably Twisted. it is a cross of an early daylily called Autumn Minaret and a newer daylily called Bark At Me. and that is where the twisted part comes from. Autumn Minaret is taller and fussier. and it has a smaller flower. fussier in that it seldom sets a pod and even more seldom allows the seeds to ripen. Bark At Me is shorter and has a bigger twisted flower. put them together and pink and yellow come out purple. the new plant is about the height of Bark At Me and about the same flower size too. the first image is Bark At Me the pod parent. next Autumn Minaret the pollen parent. and lastly is Predictably Twisted. a fitting name for a flower to grow in the vicinity of the Cuyahoga river. that name means twisted also…
