Daylily - 'Life Is A Highway'


Daylily - 'Life Is A Highway'

I finally had my first day since the end of March without a flower open, but it wasn't today. This has started blooming. When I got it, there were 2 separate fans, and the other flowered in August. This is in a different area, and started today. It is next to Star of India, which I'm expecting to start opening again in the next few days.

Beautiful......., can't wait to sow your seeds from your cross using this :-)
Believe it or not I have a scape on 'Eight Miles High'!!!, its forecast to be quite mild here for a while so what are its chances I wonder? I can always hope lol.

You never know Kathy! This one is the closest I've seen yet, to the lilac/apricot combo I'm always hoping for! It's stunningly gorgeous! I wonder if I could track it down..what do you think Kathy? Have you come across this one ever? I look forward to seeing your 8 miles!

This is a 2010 release from Dan Hansen, and I got it this year from him.

Oh it is fantastic! Almost the same form as SQUIRREL BEATER isn't it?

'Julie Newmar' is one thats more widely available than this one Karen, pale apricot with a lavender/blue eye if you put it in the search engine you'll find mine and Wylies pictures of it, it is one I'd recommend a real beauty ;-)
'Destined to See' is another beauty but thats more creamy yellow with a lilac eye.

This is flatter than Squirrel Beater and nearly twice as large! The cold makes it curl, but in the summer it is flat.
Julie Newmar is really nice (I have 11 seeds of Julie Newmar x Life Is A Highway), but Destined To See has more blooms and reblooms faster. It also sets seeds easier, so I have more crosses ready to go using it.
