Description

AUCTION IS FOR 4 SEEDS OF THE CROSS OF GREAT WHITE DOVE X BIG FROSSTY.  THERE WILL BE A BONUS OF 2 SEEDS FROM THE SAME CROSS IF THE AUCTION PAYMENT IS RECEIVED IN 10 DAYS OR LESS. 

POD PARENT:

Geat White Dove  (Pierce G.)  TET 828-A  (Shamrock Dew x Fancy Lace)  38”  6.5” flower, EV emo EEre,  9-way branching with 50 buds.  Arching Foliage. Fragrant.  

No one has had the success with cutting edge whites as Floyd Cove and to be honest even though I have made hundreds and hundreds of white seed, the ability to IMPROVE on our existing lines has been futile until Great White Dove.

From two flowers I so adored, the big wide face of Fancy Lace, and the green in Shamrock Dew, I was able to make approx. 50 seed from this cross.  This is a lot since the whole Dream Runner line is so tough to use.  There were bigger blooms, greener, more ruffled etc. but none of them had all the traits I was looking for until Great White Dove bloomed, and so she tamed everything else in the cross.  With over 50 flowers towering above the arching foliage, the blooms never a hang-up even though the flowers are adorned with the biggest ruffles and angel wings of any white in the nursery.  Even the sepals are ruffled.

Great White Dove is a beacon of modern perfection.  The shade of white though having a ½% tint of lemon is not only THE WHITEST of all our introductions, but certainly the most ruffled, and has the heaviest substance too.  Furthermore at 5pm even after the sprinklers have been on, the blooms appear almost untouched.  Fertile both ways, and an easy pod parent with some shade, Great White Dove will be one of those daylilies that will have that modern look even a decade from now!.  Like Shamrock Dew this flower loves spring and cool nights, and is wide open at dawn when she blooms here in March.  Photo taken at dawn in March.


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    $200.00
