*BILL MUNSON  -- {[Cherry Chapeau (Betty Warren Woods x Emerald Dawn)] [(Dance Balerina Dance x Lady Marmalade)(Kecia x Judy Koltz)]}{Effay Veronica}  Dor. to Sev., 5- 51/2” fl., 24- 27” sc., M.  When Bill Munson walked through my garden with Steve Moldovan and Richard Taylor to pick out a flower to be named for him, we assumed he would choose a purple flower.  Instead, in a sea of blooms, Bill’s discerning eye chose this beauty to carry his name.  When I asked him how he chose this flower, he responded, “It has all the bells and whistles.”  What more can I add?  The flowers are a clear pink with a heavy ruffled gold edge.  They also have a heavy substance and texture, with a green throat.  The plants are nicely branched, with two laterals plus top branching carrying 25 - 30 blooms.  Plants overwinter well in Canada.  Named after one of history’s greatest daylily hybridizers and a dear friend.
