Auction is for 5 seeds from the cross of RULING SHOGUN X MASTER AND BOLD RULER.
(Benz) tet 34" M. Dor (Last Samurai X Nancy Thomas)
Huge, ruffled, and always perfect, is possibly my finest red to date. Larger than either parent at a full 6 1/2" in size, this beautiful heavily ruffled crimson red with its large green throat is a benchmark in my red program. Red color is superior to pod-parent LAST SAMURAI, and RULING SHOGUN takes size and form from NANCY THOMAS, but is larger and heavier than its renowned pollen-parent. Always flat and very sunfast, and the green throat holds. RULING SHOGUN has no “bad hair” days....always perfect regardless of cold nights. Plants are large, powerful and blue-green dormant; scapes are tall, straight and strong, with beautifully spaced 4-way branching and a total of 22 buds. Very fragrant and fertile both ways....SOLD OUT
WE BLOOMED OUR BEST EVER REDS AND PURPLES THE LAST FEW YEARS AND RULING SHOGUN IS THE PARENT MOST OF THEM HAD IN COMMON.
*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.
