It had 6 Fans and it was around 30″ tall. The daylily bloomed as a 1 year old from seed… Anyway I think Ode to Faith should be explored more, after seeing this seedling bloom I put a lot of crosses on this plant this last summer.”
Jack I agree, I like ODE TO FAITH. The daylily is registered at 33 inch height, Dor., 6 inch bloom. It is a yellow to gold blend. American freedom was registered by Frank Smith. The cross is ( Tet. Ultimate Perfection X J.T. Davis) It is interesting that you got a rose color out of the cross. I would have not expected that. Anyways , nice seedling!
Thanks Jack for sharing your daylily cross. If anyone is interested, I saw Betty Fritz had ODE TO FAITH for sale…. Tomorrow another seedling on the Daylily Blog…
