“ It is a mauve daylily with an exotic and uniqueBEARD! What sets MICHAEL’S SWORD apart, from all the rest, are the incrediblebeardslifting off all three petals (3-way) about 90-100% of the time once established in a 4-5 fan clump. The seedlings we are now growing from MICHAEL'S SWORD are showing even more refinedbeardedeffects with 99-100% 'TRUE BEARDING'’consistency! Obviously, this trait is not just a one time happening event! MICHAEL’S SWORD was named to symbolize the “sword of truth” wielded by ‘Michael,’ the mightiest of God’s archangels. After seven years of hybridizing using various raised petaloid prospects, we have truly been blessed with the creation of MICHAEL’S SWORD!
MICHAEL’S SWORD is pod fertile. MICHAEL’ S SWORD performs with a bud count of up to 20+ buds. When compared to it’s pollen parent (LAVENDER BLUE BABY), MICHAEL’S SWORD exceeds LBB on bud count growing here in mid/northern Indiana. Most importantly, MICHAEL’S SWORD outperforms BEE’S BETTIE SUE's mid-rib crested effects by far, with 90-100% consistentbeardingon all three petals and is much easier to set seed with compared to BBS! Some thoughtbeardingcouldn’t be done with any consistency. MICHAEL’S SWORD now wields new truth for the future!
Whether looking for something new to add to your hybridizing gene pool or simply adding another conversation piece to the garden, MICHAEL’S SWORD is destined to create a whole new focus in the world of daylilies!”
TEXAS FEATHERED FANCY
(20”-5.25”-MRe-DOR) – LAVENDER BLUE BABY X Unknown – This was the first seedling to bloom from LAVENDER BLUE BABY having that special new characteristic which we call feathering in the throat. It later appeared in some Tet LBB kids. In any case this cultivar has been in tremendous demand for some time and there are many reserves on it for that reason. It is unique having the very thick and hardened “feathers” in the throat area of the petals. Fertile both ways.
