*CARVED INITIALS 
 
 
*CARVED INITIALS -- (Carved in Stone) (Bas Relief) Sev. 6.5 fl. 32 sc. M 20 buds.  Most other carved daylilies are in the yellow to orange color range.  Carved In Stone was an important break, since it came from red breeding.  Combining the carving of both Bas Relief and Carved in Stone produced Carved Initials, a heavily sculpted daylily, with striking three dimensional carving.  The coral to watermelon flowers have a lighter watermark in the carved area, and are set off by a green throat.  The flowers carry a very ruffled lighter colored edge, which is often folded and pleated.  Carved Initials combines the great carving of its two famous parents with rich watermelon color.  A wonderful parent of carved flowers.
