Description

AUCTION IS FOR FIVE SEEDS OF THE CROSS OF IRISH HALO X SHIMMERING DAWN.

POD PARENT:

IRISH HALO. [(Leslie Renee x Angels Gather Around) x (Leslie Renee x Angels Gather Around)]. Semi-evergreen. Tetraploid. Early blooms. 30” tall, 4-way branching, 20 buds, 5 ˝” flower. This is my best green edged daylily. IRISH HALO has a deep green throat, and a lovely ivory polychrome self, with a gorgeous green edge that surrounds each of the petals. This spring I entered IRISH HALO as a numbered seedling into the competition at our annual Daylily Show. We had fifteen (15) judges. IRISH HALO was selected as the best seedling, then, it was judged to be the very best of the 496 daylilies that were entered in the show. Each of the 15 judges decided separately that IRISH HALO was unique, that it was noticeably distinctive, and that, indeed, it was the “Best in the Show.” What better recommendation could there be for a new introduction? You will truly appreciate IRISH HALO because it has four-way branching, and buds that are not crowded or overly concentrated. From the first bloom to the last bloom, you will appreciate and adore this unique creation. Pod and pollen fertile.

POLLEN PARENT:

*Shimmering Dawn (Pierce G.) 184-C (Angels Gather Around X Fringy) X Sib to Fancy Lace) TET SEV EM 40” 6.5” flower, 9 way branching, 60-70 buds.

I could fill up the page with comments on this tremendously fine near white daylily, but it’s the edge and stats that are the real winners. Base color is cream white with a dash of pink unlike the usual yellow. This makes the yellow gold edge pop ever so more beautifully. Shimmering Dawn has not only been by far my best breeder in this color class but after blooming thousands of the best edged white seedlings for years… to see only seedling beds of nines & tens, -Wow- there she was; an Eleven! Let me tell you it’s not easy having a winner genetically jump the fence as I like to say, and then next year being clever enough to come up with something Better…
Nothing comes close to the thick bubbly edge on Shimmering Dawn. At over ˝” thick there is; No hanging, water spotting, nothing but elegance and style. You’ll see… As a parent, this year I took Shimmering Dawn to outcross colors in desperation due to the lack of other big edges with plant habit, and let me tell you I stood back cross after cross and was delighted in how well she worked. First I saw the winning flowers and form, and then the signature scape!
Fertile both ways but… very limited.
