Description

We anticipate listing plants at least through April. We have some line outs and we are breaking up some clumps. Our plants look very good and we are quite proud of our listings!! WE DO NOT SELL undersized PLANTS!We describe the plants as they are now, not as we hope they will be at shipping time..

We mix our own soil, including alfalfa, bone meal, blood meal andWORM CASTINGS. We feed primarily with Miracle Grow with minors and SEAWEED CONCENTRATE. We do not force our plants to grow. We use good old California sunshine, water, nutrients andTIME (maturity). We rely heavily onorganic productsfor insect and disease control---we also have LADYBUGS, GREEN LACEWINGS AND PRAYING MANTISon patrol for us. In most cases, you will find the HYBRIDIZERS NOTES below.---Thanks for looking!!

You are bidding on a NICE single fan!!!!

EARL PORTER(Benz)tet30" M. Dor (Dark Empire X Paint It Black)EARL PORTER is in a class by itself and sets a new standard in black daylilies. This 5 1/2" showy black purple with its beautiful ruffling is far darker than parent PAINT IT BLACK, and even flatter and heavier. A true nocturnal, and blooms are fully open by midnight and are open by midnight the next day. Always FLAT-OPEN and always perfect, and the green throat is lime green by 8 p.m. on a 90° day. The color fades a little by day's end to a fluorescent deep black-violet, but is never badly damaged by either sun or rain. EARL PORTER makes huge plants and boasts extremely well-branched scapes with a bud-count as high as 40. This icon is not just a little heavier and a little darker than my other blacks, it raises the bar by a wide margin. By sundown on a 93° day, EARL PORTER is nearly unchanged, fading to a shimmering violet black, while PAINT IT BLACK has faded to maroon, NIGHT WINGS is fudge brown, and all other blacks I grow are muddy burgundy with gold throats. I simply don't have any "blacks" remotely this sunfast except my NIGHT FLYER and INDIGO VELVET, which was Larry Grace's pick of all my blacks 3 years ago-and neither of them are in the same league as EARL PORTER. My brother-in-law and dear friend EARL PORTER passed away in spring 2011 and black daylilies were his passion. He hybridized for only a few years and then moved and had no place to plant seedlings. He introduced 2 good blacks-the diploid COAL MINER and the tetraploid ALASKAN MIDNIGHT. He was in love with this flower and it's only fitting that my finest black bear his name.

We dig, dip, clip and ship on the same day and plants are carefully prepared for shipping promptly after they come out of the soil.Shipping is $12 for the first plant and additional wins will be $3 for each single or double fan and $5 for those with 3 or more fans shipped in the same box(we will do our best to combine as many as we can).Your largest win will be your first plant.WE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MAKE MONEY ON SHIPPING CHARGES!!We have checked many times, and the vast majority of times our fees are very close to the actual charges.
