two generations of crosses are all that separate Dashing Prince from Vertical Horizon. these are not my crosses. they happened in somebody else’s garden. Dashing Prince has been in our garden for several years. i have not used it to make any crosses. Vertical Horizon has made a lot of seedlings here. if you look close somewhere along the path from Dashing Prince to Vertical Horizon some things were added. and still the family resemblance is there. so first parental history. a group of dark eyed daylilies. the family tree.

And now to fill in the pictures.

to see an image of King of Prussia

Vertical Horizon has a larger eye zone with a pointy edge, a dark purple edge around the petals and ruffles. and still it resembles Dashing Prince in many ways.

      Judy – if the attention span holds and the rest of the picture are there I will try to do some of the seedlings growing here from Vertical Horizon tonight. Thanks

      Thanks Dan. Believe it or not it is instructional for me. And not always easy to do. Not all of the details are always available. The one image is not available on the AHS database. I hope to do an extension of it tonight. We will see if the seedling images have any gaps.

    the Merchant Marine and Moonlit Masquerade are beautimous! I have so many oranges and yellows in my area for garden beneficial flowers, etc., always love the options available in the purple/blue side of the spectrum – 🙂
