Royal Fringe, Daylily
*Royal Fringe

* 'Royal Fringe'  (Fortune’s Dearest x Forbidden Fantasy) (Mort Morss) Sev. 6” fl. 27” sc. M 20 buds.  In the beginning, there were teeth. I was sure that, with time and persistence, we could turn the individual teeth into a white fringe edge. Royal Fringe has done just that. These clear lavender to purple flowers have a lighter watermark and a deep green center. The petal edges are surrounded by a continuous white filagree fringed edge. The white fringe edge forms an ornate and dramatic contrast to the purple self.  Royal Fringe has been an important breeder for red and purple flowers with dramatic white fringes.
