*QUEEN OF THE DESERT -- (Opal Ring x Rainbow Eyes) (Through the Looking Glass) Sev. 6 fl. 29 sc. M. 20 buds.  I suppose it is obvious that I love the patterned eyes.  Bill Munson felt they had the greatest future potential of any daylily type, and I agree.  Queen of the Desert contains a very formal patterned eye, with a with lavender violet, charcoal and burgundy bands.  What sets Queen Of The Desert apart from other patterned daylilies is its large, prominent green throat and overall precision.  The flowers have a heavy substance and always open beautifully.  The base color is a cream tangerine to cream gold.  The blooms are nicely ruffled, with a wire gold edge.
