MADAGASCAL MOON


MADAGASCAL MOON

Don Church 2009
5.5 inch flowers on a 30 inch scape, dormant foliage
Just when you think yellow tetraploids could not be improved, along comes a daylily that out shines both parents. (Ferengi Gold x Ram)
Ram pollen brings H. Fred Ham , a Munson classic in the south, into a hardy daylily for northern gardens. Super clean looks with great performance repeating here in this zone 5a garden. Very heavy substance with great form making it rainproof. 3- 4 way branching with a bud count of 25. Opens flat every day with never a bad hair day. Adding that it consistantly repeats in Maine's climate before the first scape is finished blooming makes Madagascal Moon a northern hybridizers dream come true.
The name Madagascal comes from an American Indian word naming a lake and stream in northern Maine. Words can not describe this beautiful spring fed trout stream that flows through mature trees from the town of Lee through the township of Saponic and meets the Passadumkeag River.

Lavender Stories daylily

LAVENDER STORIES

Don Church 2004
This is registered as an unknown because Ravens in the yard pulled the ID tags out in this area of the seedling garden. I believe it was from Always Afternoon x Nosferatu
Temporarily Out
This very large lavender tetraploid daylily is a vigorous grower. Fourth flower measurements were taken and it was 7.25 " across with 3.75" wide petals. Lavender Stories opens a wide flat flower every two to three days per scape. It has very good flower presentation and long bloom time because of this trait.
Very pod fertile, I set virtually every flower two summers ago trying to capture this wide petaled look and heavy texture in other colors. Some of the offspring bloomed with very wide petals and great substance like Lavender Stories.
Lavender Stories' foliage habit is semi-evergreen and midseason flowering.



SIMPLE SPLENDOR

Don Church 2005
I don't usually like the blending of the parent names for cultivars but this one certainly fits the blend of both the parents. (Pure & Simple X Patrician Splendor) 4 - 5 way branched with 25-35 bud count. This beautiful daylily has remarkable performance with a long bloom season and bloomed 43 days in 2008
A large flower at 6" and an early bloom time put this one opening before many of the large tetraploids even start. A nice pink that passes on its elegant ruffles to its offspring.

PURPLE TUFF ENUFF

Don Church 2006
Wide petals measured at 3.25 inches and blooming over a long period from Midseason through late season.
Purple Tuff Enuff opens flat after 48 - 50 ° nights, it opens flat when most of all of the registered purples and lavenders in the garden do not. These cold nights happen frequently here on the coast of Maine during the bloom season making this selection a winner in cold northern locations such as our own.[ Houdini x (Court Magician x Admirals Braid)]
