WELCOME TO FROSTLINE DAYLILIES

 

We have the following new introductions for your enjoyment this year:

 

 

'Another Man’s Praise'

(Heartbeat Of Heaven x seedling)

 

 

‘Another Man's Praise’

 

  • 5” bloom
  • 28” tall
  • mid season
  • dormant
  • 14 buds
  • strong Rebloom

 

We are very happy with ANOTHER MAN’S PRAISE for several reasons.  The first is naturally a strikingly beautiful bloom:  a very clean, clear rosy pink bitone with a wide edge of gold ruffles.  It is the sort of color expression that draws one from across the garden.  Blooms open readily with segments recurving to provide an open form.

 

Hybridizing efforts here in the last 10 years have been toward developing hardy daylilies that will rebloom faithfully.  ANOTHER MAN’S PRAISE has proven itself to meet the three big criteria: beauty of bloom, hardiness, and a steadfast rebloomer each season.  Accordingly, this daylily provides a long  season with the instant rebloom  it provided. Typically, just as the first scapes finish bloom, the second set starts. Like our earlier reblooming introduction of POTTER’S WHEEL, ANOTHER MAN’S PRAISE is also from Karol Emmerich’s renowned HEARTBEAT OF HEAVEN.  We have several very promising seedlings  from this year’s introduction.  She is fertile both for pod and pollen.

'Heritage House'

(FEAR NOT x seedling)

 

'Heritage House'

 

  • 5.5” bloom
  • 28” tall
  • mid season
  • dormant
  • 16 buds
  • Reblooms most years

 

As a parent, FEAR NOT has produced some very fine kids for us.  They tend to be very consistent in regard to color expression, hardiness and substance.  HERITAGE HOUSE matches these criteria perfectly.  Color is a deep, rich violet-lavender with a lighter watermark set above a bitter green throat that expresses itself strongly.  Substance is strong, promoting good sun resistance,  The nicely ruffled edges show a clean creamy chartreuse tone.  Blooms open readily and most seasons HERITAGE HOUSE hosts a good deal of rebloom for us, which helps extend the bloom season.  We have been happy with HERITAGE HOUSE since its maiden bloom and hope to have enough to fill orders.  Establishes and increases readily.  Simply stated, a really fine garden plant that always looks good.

Last Year’s Introductions

 

 

'Circus Comes To Town'

(cross of two seedlings)

'Circus Comes To Town'

 

If you like a daylily with a bright red eye, red picotee edging and a strong green throat, CIRCUS COMES TO TOWN may be for you.  We finally have enough stock increased to be able to offer it this season.  CCTT is the sort of daylily that shouts from a distance due to its brightness, and with the bloomscapes reaching about 36” it doesn’t hide in the foliage.

CIRCUS COMES TO TOWN produces a large clump with a large number of bloomscapes, which makes for an extended bloom season.  Three-way branching holds the blooms apart and uncrowded, as the picture indicates.  Bud count is in the area of 16.

Bloom size is 6” on this semi-evergreen to dormant cultivar.  Establishing quickly, CCTT increases readily.  A mid season bloomer, CIRCUS COMES TO TOWN opens readily with no pouting. 

The picture basically says it all.  This is an extremely bright daylily that shouts for attention.  We have used to produce beautiful eyed kids with LIGHT OF THE WORLD and BANNER OF LOVE if you are interested in hybridizing.

As a fine garden cultivar, we recommend CIRCUS COMES TO TOWN without hesitation.

'Invocation'

(Blood, Sweat And Tears x seedling)

'Invocation'

 

We have always enjoyed Karol Emmerich’s fine BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS, a large, ultra clean/clear, broad red.  Hence, it has been used a good deal in crossing with out own red lines for good success.  One of those success stories in this year’s introduction of INVOCATION.

    The bloom itself is ultra smooth and extremely clean of a lighter cranberry-red tone. The fact that there is a total uniformity of this red color makes the green heart all the more contrasty.  Nothing else to draw away one’s attention.

Opening beautifully with some recurving, there is a relaxed beauty to the 6.5” blossom.  Flower segments are wide and of heavy substance.  Color holds very well from beginning to end of the day.  Another feature that one appreciates is the somewhat fluted type of easy ruffling.  Nothing frenetic here.  Just an easy flow.

Another matter about INVOCATION that has drawn favorable comments is that it has some height at about 36-38 inches tall.  No flowers hidden in this foliage!  Scapes have 3-4 way branching and an average of about large blooms.  During wet summers, or if you provide extra water, one will often encounter rebloom.

INVOCATION has been a totally hardy semi-ev to dormant here.  New plants settle in readily with average increase.  Quite hardy, we have some promising seedlings to evaluate from this one.

No bunched up, gaudy gold ruffling here.  Just a voluptuously simple, clean, clear red to brighten the garden.

'Parting The Waters'

(Forty Days And Forty Nights x Heartbeat Of Heaven)

'Parting The Waters'

 

           Minnesota hybridizer, Karol Emmerich, has introduced many outstanding daylilies.  Two of the first we acquired from her were the parents of  PARTING THE WATERS.  Both are outstanding garden plants which have produced several seedlings that we will introduce in the future.

            From its initial bloom we were pleased with PARTING THE WATERS.  It is a “finished” bloom and strong garden subject.  A hardy semi-ev, PTW produces its floral display where they can be seen—about 34” tall.  With 3-way branching, this daylily produces an average of 18 blooms per scape. 

            Mid-season to mid-late, at 6”, PARTING THE WATERS is a very clean, medium, lavender-pink.  She opens beautifully, displaying a bright green throat outlined in a narrow darker band of lavender.  With strong ruffling, the heritage of HEARTBEAT OF HEAVEN, the blooms are outlined in a chartreuse yellow band.

            Because it is well liked here, PTW has been used heavily in hybridizing and has produced many interesting kids.  We look forward to the bloom each summer. It has been a grand parent with SEVEN SEALS.

            The picture basically tells the story here.  Stable on color presentation and a hardy garden variety, we think you will be well pleased with PARTING THE WATERS, as are we.

'Yuletide Greetings'

(Dragon Rider x seedling)

'Yuletide Greetings'

 

           Our former introduction of DRAGON RIDER has proven to be a popular daylily, and she has produced a number of outstanding seedlings in the last seasons.  One of these is YULETIDE GREETING.  From its first bloom visitors noticed YG.

            The basic background of the bloom is a cranberry red with wine blend.  Stemming from the pod parent, DR, YULETIDE GREETING has the same easy going, tailored flare with recurving petals and sepals that recurve and twist/spin.

            In this daylily one finds various expressions, depending on weather.  The picture of the two blooms is the most typical with a wide watermarked band of chalky blue tones. The picture of the single gives another expression  with darker tones and a dark, narrow band above the throat.  A third expression is much like the first and second, but with white “twinkles” present at the outer edge of the watermark.  Many hybridizers are working for this new expression with interesting results.  Where the twinkles come from on YULETIDE GREETING remains a puzzle here as there has been no outside introduction of such genetics.

            Growing about 28” tall, YG produces a large number of scapes with 3-way branching.  A hardy, vigorous dormant, she increases quickly and presents a long run of 6” blooms, usually with an average of 20.

            Now, the strongest feature of YULETIDE GREETING…a DOMINANT GREEN throat/heart.  No matter what the weather, what the temperature,  the green is BOLD, standing out from a distance.

            We have nice two-fan plants for $50.00.
