  BLUEBERRY TRUMPETS (Sobek) 47", D., E., 3 ¼"                   $25.00

Only a miniature, but what an extraordinary color break Bob has found in this hybrid for our early bloom season. Trumpet like flowers of deep blue-purple with a pleasing creamy green throat tower above the other perennials in the spring garden. Not an unusual bud count at 18 buds per scape, but its multiple scapes, height and color say, “Hey, look at me.” It may seem like a flash appearance but a fabulous color especially when grown with the contrast of other early daylilies like SUZIE WONG or NEON YELLOW. Worth owning for many reasons. Introduced by Tranquil Lake Nursery in 2006

  BUSTING OUT ALL OVER (Sobek) 27", D., Ex E., 3"           $18.00

An amazing miniature daylily that is a very consistent rebloomer which can increases to a small clump after one growing season. This pale, cream-yellow flower has faint lavender midribs that lead to a green throat that give this soft colored hybrid a little star power in the garden. In 2010, this lovely plant bloomed three different times and our hard frosts of late September was all that halted new, emerging scapes from flowering. Branched scapes give several blooms per day during the peak of each sequence of rebloom. This can be a champion in any garden. Introduced by Tranquil Lake Nursery in 2006.

A delightful soft, pale yellow miniature with a small purple eyezone that adds a near pixie like bloom face in our late June garden. Almost a near white, the purple eyezone give great contrast as it surrounds a pale green throat. As the musical name implies, the recurring soft refrain within the season is truly welcome when it reblooms in the midst of so many bright yellows and golds of August. Along with Bob's "Busting Out All Over", this is one of his more prolific rebloomers from the 2010 growing season.

This small, sparkling melon-gold daylily brings its cheerfully blooming face into the early season garden, frequently offering two flowers blooming on the same scape face-to-face.

  FULVOUS BRUSHMAN (Sobek) 39", D., L., 5 ¾"                     $20.00

A wonderful addition to the late garden scene. Though it resembles the H. fulva species daylily that marks the beginning of summer for some, this hybrid is far on the other end of the season. With its narrow bright orange segments, each with an orange-red eye and yellow midrib, these flowers shine in the autumn sun. Each scape carries 28 buds and can bloom for five weeks or more in the garden. Not special for color or flower form, but special for its season extension and endurance of color on cool fall nights. It sparkles morning after morning until the end of September. Introduced by Tranquil Lake Nursery in 2006

Perhaps the Celtic wizard’s dark side came into play to help create this dark, nearly black-red flower. Truly, our most sunfast black-red we grow and in a perfect season to showcase its height and color in the waning days of many summer gardens. A 5 ⅛” dark flower with a darker velvety eyezone over a yellow-green throat that has a pleasing flower form and very good foliage.

Another child of "In Strawberry Time" that has created a different result and the added pleasure of rebloom. A nocturnal miniature with petals the color of soft rose and a slightly darker rose eyezone above a large throat of yellow shading to apple green. With more ruffling than the parent, this cultivar becomes a very sweet, pleasing flower for the garden. Not a high bud count but rebloom occurs soon after the first blooms are extinguished or even missed. Reblooms for us in the late season. Introduced by Tranquil Lake Nursery in 2006

  RED FLAT FRED (Sobek) 37", D., M.L., 5 ½" (T)                       $25.00
