Intricate By Design

(Journey of Magic x Easter Egg) (Inviting Romance) Sev. 6" fl. 25" sc. M 20 buds. Good rust resistance and fertile both ways. I have been working for many years to improve the pattern daylily. This includes making them larger, with the pattern moving around the petal edges and covering more of the petal surface, and making them more ornate, with ruffled petal edges, surrounded by gold edging. Intricate By Design has finally achieved those goals. At the center of the flower is a large green throat, which is surrounded by a complex pattern eye of blue violet. The pattern is made up of darker inward streaks of charcoal, violet and purple, with the eye being surrounded by a burgundy mascara band. The pattern eye continues around the petal edges as a multiple edged picotee of burgundy, blue violet with darker veining, surrounded by a lacy gold edge. The edge has tightly crimped ruffles as well as large, looping ruffles and small tentacles of gold. A major achievement in pattern breeding and an awesome parent.
