Velvet Rainbow

(God Save the Queen x Laws of Illusion) Sev. 6" fl. 27" sc. ML 20 buds. Very good rust resistance, cold hardy and fertile both ways. Velvet Rainbow has been one of my most heavily used parents since the day it bloomed. The petal self is a lavender pink and there is a green throat at the center of the flower. Surrounding the throat is a very large violet pattern eye, surrounded by a burgundy mascara band. The violet and burgundy eye continue around the petal edges as an extremely wide picotee. The color of the picotee is the same violet color as the eye, but the inverse, with the burgundy band on the inside of the picotee. The petal edges are surrounded by a gold edge. While the eye and picotee are violet, not the blue in some of my other introductions, it is from blue breeding and has the widest picotee of any flower in this color range. The eye and edge are so large, it only leaves a small triangle of petal self. I have taken Velvet Rainbow to my true blue daylilies with very exciting results.
