when you are, then you get to choose the plant. you get to choose the name for the plant. and sometimes you get to choose to make someone happy by naming the plant for that person. this plant is not mine. it was named by another hybridizer. and if, yes if, i have the story right the hybridizer got to name the plant for his grandson. some days are just good. i think this example covers a good day. two images My Friend Floyd a 10 in 25.5 cm bloom. enjoy….
i like coming back to a daylily that i have looked at before. this one called One Last Dance. it is a rose color bloom with a light pink watermark. and a light edge around the petals. a little bit of ruffling to the edge and that is all it needs. two images..
one of the members of our local daylily club also grows and selects his own plants from seed. some of his other flowers have shown up here. this one is called Phylly Marlene and is named for his lovely wife. a pink flower with a pink halo. is there any better compliment to one’s spouse than a pretty flower ? two images.
think pink. think 1997. think a good year for pink flowers. ( what isn’t a good year for pink flowers_ ? ) you there in the parentheses – sit down and listen up… this is Becky Lynn. i should have a rhyme handy for this beauty. that or ponder changing the title of this post. or just ramble on quickly to other items. this is a full bodied flower and a large flower, just under 7 inches 17.8 cm. did i mention it has ruffles ? ! ? forget the rhyme… it has ruffles ! two images…
the winter beat most of the roses right down to the ground. still they are not about to give up. they are sprouting. new growth is coming up from the base of the plants that survived. there is something neat about the fresh red growth of roses. the flower is forming already.
