Strawberries and Chocolate, Daylily
*Strawberries and Chocolate

* 'Strawberries and Chocolate' (Written on the Wind x Gary Colby) x (Believe in Miracles x Sea of Possibilities) Sev. 5.5” fl. 26” sc. M 20 buds.  Absolute saturation of color best describes these flowers.  The base color is a burgundy red with a deep black purple velvet eye.  The eye color continues as an even darker, almost pitch black picotee around the flower.  At the center of the flower is a deep green throat.  These extremely richly colored flowers look like they are painted on plush velvet.  The velvet eye is very large covering much of the petal surface.  The rich, dark, saturated colors are like a beacon across the garden.
