WILLIAM HAYNES (Stamile,P.) TET 541-A [(sdlg. x Tetra Green Widow) x
(sdlg. x Webster’s Pink Wonder) X Stick Figure] 42” ERe. Emo. Ev.
11 ½” x 1 ¼” x 7/8” (14” wingspan). Classic spider.
Spider ratio 5.5:1. 3-way branching. 15-20 buds. This is
one great blooming daylily. It starts early in the season and keeps
sending up scapes throughout the season. It will blooms 4 sets of
scapes in Florida.
Named for the renowned artist and fellow hybridizer
Richard William Haynes, the daylily RICHARD WILLIAM HAYNES brings a new
pallet of color to the spider class. This light soft pink daylily
captures everyone’s heart. Moreover, the flowers curl and dance not
with abandon but with great elegance and precision. It is something
like a dance troupe where you sense great and seemingly chaotic
movement and yet it is carefully contrived and choreographed, to reveal
itself at the end of the movement.
Another personal favorite. I know I already have
DANCING CHEVRONS but can’t we have two? Fertile both ways but a very
difficult pod parent.
