Daylily cross - Big Kiss x Style Plus


Daylily cross - Big Kiss x Style Plus

I have gone crazy using the pollen from this on some other DIPs - I don't have many dormant double DIP daylilies.

For me it is the form - more compact than usual. But it is only 4.5" across.

What does that mean - double DIP lily, please?
This one is nice and I would name it "Vanilla Ice" :))

* Dormant is it's habit: it loses its foliage during the winter.
* Double is its form: normally a daylily has 3 sepals (the petals that are on the outside until it opens, and then they are on the backside.
* DIP refers to diploid or the fact that it has 22 chromosomes as opposed to a TET or tetraploid which has 44, and is the reason you cannot cross a DIP and a TET.
* Daylily is the common name for a hemerocallis.
I just wanted to have 4 words in a row that started with "D".
"Vanilla Ice" was used by Wild in 1987 for a single one.

Really? Have to google how it looks like. Thank you very much for womderful answer. Once when I will write a novel, you will be one of its characters - a wise and mysterious breeder of daylilies living in isolated island full of lilies.:))))
