*WHEEL OF TIME -- (Higher Love x Time for Eternity) (Mardi Gras Ball x Adventures with Ra) Sev. 5.5” fl. 28” sc. M. 20-25 buds.  A critical factor missing in today’s pattern daylily is matching picotee edges and gold edges, particularly the multi-colored, multiple banded edges that will be the hallmark of future daylilies.  There is now no question that many  daylilies of tomorrow will have not only a picotee edge and a gold edge, but multiple colored bands surrounding the petal edges. Wheel of Time is a critical break in patterned daylilies, bringing the multi-banded picotees as well as the modern gold edges into today’s patterned daylily.  The patterned eye in Wheel Of Time is a lavender to blue violet with a burgundy mascara edge that bleeds in along the petal veins.  The multiple colored eye continues along the petal edges as a multi-colored picotee. The petals have 3 clearly distinct edges of burgundy, blue violet, and gold.  The base color of the flowers is a cream peach  with a green throat.  The plants have well branched scapes with 3 lateral branches plus top branching, carrying 30 buds, and they set pods easily.
