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.
