Did you know that FORTUNE’S DEAREST has doubling in the background? I didn’t until I looked further into the background. The first half of the second seedling in FOTUNE’S DEAREST is COOL JAZZ. So we now have (Mort’s Magic x Sib to Mort’s Magic F2) x (Cool Jazz x .
Breaking down COOL JAZZ is as follows (Windsor Watermark x Tet Sari Tet Nagasaki) Registered as ROYAL FANFARE

KEITH KENNON, hybridized by Kennon. Evergreen. Cream-Pink Double no image found.
The revelation in the cross is the double in the background going back to DOUBLE CUTIE. Larry Grace has always wondered why a double popped up every so often in his crosses.
The above crosses also reveal where the grape watermark eye zone came from in FORTUNE’S DEAREST. Most Likely from Munson daylilies. On this side of the cross, only DOROTHY LAMBERT has dormancy in it. There is minor yellow/pink/cream color in the cross from NAGASAKI with the majority of color weighted toward purple. More background on FORTUNE’S DEAREST on the next daylily teeth blog.
