Description

Auction is for 5 seeds from the cross of PIERRE S. DU PONT X MASTER AND BOLD RULER.

POD PARENT:

PIERRE S. du PONT
(Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis x Tet Siloam Goliath)

  • 7” flower, 4-way branching. 30 buds on a 36” scape.
  • This is one of the most beautiful clear iridescent pinks I have seen. In my mother’s garden in North Carolina, under cooler Spring temperatures, the flower sometimes has a slight coral undertone. The extreme heavy ruffling makes this plant a true standout.
  • Pierre S. du Pont (1870-1954)
  • One of America's most celebrated industrialists and horticulturalists. Pierre spent his entire lifetime searching the world for rare plants and established one of America's foremost private gardens, Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania
  • Semi-evergreen
  • Fertile both ways

POLLEN PARENT:



*MASTER & BOLD RULER (Pierce G.) 4406-H ((Midnight Castle x Buffalo Thunder) x Max Factor) TET, EV, EMRE, 40” high, 9 1/2” - 11 ¾” When extended. 5 way branching, 40 Buds. HUGE Zones 4-9 Hardy

Where in the world do I begin? Firstly, I want to point out that no daylily that I have created and probably will create will change for the better the future of Daylily Hybridizing. This daylily is truly The Master of our garden. MASTER & BOLD RULER has no faults. If you look at the above stats and embrace the following you will see why I love it so. I would like to add though that this long description is not about pride or exaggeration, or is priced for greed. I basically got lucky and this leap forward is a game changer; not only for me but for everyone who chooses to see or breed with him. My claim to fame is simply long hours and hard work, so while breeding for BIG, I made as many crosses and seed as I could, forgoing other directions, to simply explore the gene pool of big! I mostly use the same technique today.

OK here are some facts: The Master has never lost a plant; whether dividing-up in August or in a clump. He has grown and survived well over this past winter in a zone 4 section of New Hampshire after a cold winter with no mulching or snow cover! Regarding the size factor, the phrase genetically jumped the fence is precisely what has happened; again to ALL OF OUR good fortune… The process went from two parents approx. 7” to an offspring over 70% larger. Like a horse giving birth to an elephant! With large ruffles and the occasional angel wings, MASTER AND BOLD RULER does not hang-up and has the strength to always open no matter what’s in the petals way. Pod Fertility is average to good whereas generally big flowers are the hardest to set on. There are many other attributes. One problem for me is once I release this monster how do I then introduce 7 ½”, 7 ¾” or 8” futures?

OUR SEEDS WERE PRODUCED IN OUR GARDEN. WHILE WE RECOGNIZE THERE ARE SOME POSITIVE REASONS FOR GREENHOUSE PRODUCTION, WE LIKE TO KNOW THAT AT LEAST ONE PARENT IS HARDY HERE IN ZONE 5. THIS IS A POSITIVE THAT EVEN MANY OF OUR FRIENDS ON THE GULF COAST VALUE. UNLESS OUR SEEDS HAVE TWO 2017 INTRODUCTIONS AS PARENTS, YOU KNOW THAT AT LEAST ONE PARENT CAN HANDLE COLD WEATHER.

WE WILL SHIP WORLD-WIDE TO COUNTRIES WITH NO RESTRICTIONS ON SEED. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER TO KNOW THEIR COUNTRY'S IMPORTATION REQUIREMENTS. WE SHIP TO COUNTRIES OTHER SELLERS REFUSE TO. WE HAVE SUCCESSFULLY SHIPPED TO EVERY CONTINENT.

WE ARE HAPPY TO HOLD YOUR "PAID-FOR" SEEDS AS LONG AS NECESSARY TO MINIMIZE YOUR SHIPPING COSTS.
