Eagle's Gift, Daylily
*Eagle's Gift

* 'Eagle's Gift' -- (Mort Morss x Substance of Fire) x (Fortune’s Dearest x Royal Fringe) Sev. 7” fl. 32” sc. M 25 buds. I have been working toward white fringed edges, which are especially dramatic on dark colors. Eagle’s Gift is a rich dark purple, with a continuous white fringed edge and huge white sharks teeth on both the petals and sepals. This image was taken early in the morning; later, the large flowers recurve, presenting a more rounded form. I have used Eagle’s Gift in both my full form and narrow filagree programs with equal success. These wonderful flowers are presented on tall scapes.
