Description

This is Johns description ... 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-branchedscapeswith 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 NIGHTFLYER 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 thetetraploidALASKAN MIDNIGHT. He was in love with this flower and it's only fitting that my finest black bear his name.
