*TURNING UP THE HEAT -- (J.T. Davis x Meet Joe Black) (Blueberry Baroque) Sev. 5” fl. 22” sc. M 15 buds.  When I made this cross, I was obviously trying to bring the exciting qualities of my very best, cutting edge eye-edged single daylilies into my double daylily lines.  And what a wonderful result.  Turning up the heat brings the wide edges, dark saturated color, ruffling and gold edging into the double daylily.  The self color is a melon peach to orange.  The flowers have a very large, dark saturated purple eye and matching picotee.  The ruffled edges are surrounded in a crunchy gold edge.  The eye and ruffled double edge are mimicked on the petaloids.  Striking!
