Tet, 22" E, 5 ½", Ev.
Stout Medal winner in 1997. The highest honor bestowed by the AHS for distinction, beauty and performance over a wide geographic area - need I say more? The Daylily World catalogue describes it as a "Luscious, lavender mauve blooms; midnight purple eye zones; green throat." Gorgeous plant and a proven performer everywhere.

Lavender wine bloom with very dark veining, a real show stopper placing Best in Show it's inaugural season to the show circuit. Fertile both ways and passes it's veining to it's children.

(Awesome Blossom x Moment In The Sun) x Tet. Blue Moon Rising. Sev. 5" fl. 22" sc. M 20 buds. I love these flowers because of their unusual color, which is understandable with such a mixed pedigree. The petal self is a dark orange red, with a slightly creped texture. The flower has a large dark eye with black, purple, violet, orange and red tones. The eye color continues around the petal edges as a wide picotee. Coming from Tet. Blue Moon Rising, I have taken these flowers back to the blue lines with interesting results. Dark and unusual.
