Description

AUCTION IS FOR 5 SEEDS.

POD PARENT:


ARCTIC BEAR
(Benz)tet34" M. Dor. (Key Lime Ice X Silver Surfer)
 Now and then everything seems to go just as planned. This was truly an inspired cross, and most of the 40 sibs sported beautiful gold braided edges, and were blessed with great scapes and overall balance of flower and plant. Of all these, ARCTIC BEAR was far and away the biggest bloom on the largest best branched scape, and even has the most impressive foliage huge and arching and DORMANT! Best blooms on this glistening ivory-cream beauty measure 7" and boast petals 3 3/4" across. ARCTIC BEAR opens perfectly despite even heavier substance than its parent SILVER SURFER, and it opens regardless of cold temps. Bloom shown is very average, and as the nights warm up, both petal width and the gold edge increase dramatically until the blooms just drip with gold. Very impressive in an established clump as  the thick scapes as big around as a nickel ably support 4-5 lateral branches and a bud-count of 40 or more. Plants are large and beautiful, reminiscent of parent SILVER SURFER, only improved on all points. ARCTIC BEAR has been used heavily here and we saw the first seedlings last summer. They were, in a word‹impressive.  Fertile both ways and one of our most spectacular near-white introductions to date. Important as a great showpiece for the garden and also as a foil for all the more tender gold-edged pastels that so desperately need this robust winter-hardy plant habit. $150.00 SOLD OUT

POLLEN PARENT:

BIG FROSTY
 (Benz) tet 36" M. Dor (Princess Bride X Silver Surfer)
BIG FROSTY is certainly the finest "white" daylily I've introduced. From a fortuitous and hard won cross of my two best near-whites, this 6 1/2" beauty with its 4-inch wide petals, surpasses both its parents for size, width, and refinement. I was surprised at the overall quality in this cross and repeated it time and again. Some of the sibs were bigger, some wider and some more ruffled, but 4 years and dozens of seedlings later, BIG FROSTY remains my absolute favorite. Flat open by dawn, despite heavy substance and ultra-wide form; and actually appears more beautiful and closer to white at the end of a hot summer day. Foliage is large, arching and blue-green in color, and BIG FROSTY is more vigorous than either parent. Scapes are tall and straight, but only display 2 laterals and a total of 15-18 buds. An easy parent both ways-far easier than its parents, and I've used BIG FROSTY more than all my previous near-whites combined. First kids are exciting and many exhibit the beautiful scapes and branching of PRINCESS BRIDE and SILVER SURFER. The BIG FROSTY kids are among the largest and strongest in the seedling beds, and I will make a lot more seed this summer. Oh…fragrant and REBLOOMS
