Hybridizer notes:
LAST SNOWFLAKE (Stamile,P.) TET [{(6186 x Key Lime Ice) x [First Knight x (Great White x Key Lime Ice)]} X Winter Springs] 32 La-VLaRe. Early morning opener, Evr. 7 Bloom, 7-way branching (5 laterals + terminal Y). 60-65 buds.
This is a daylily of superlatives. It is our best late-blooming daylily to date. It is the last flower to scape in the garden. Each bloom with its flat open form and pointed petals and sepals gives the illusion of a giant six-sided green snowflake.
This is also the daylily with the highest bud count I have ever done with scapes having as many as 65 buds. Most importantly, bloom is progressive so there is no crowding of blooms and bloom lasts a long time. Immediate rebloom also with incredible branching and bud count insures that LAST SNOWFLAKE will last the entire bloom season. Recommended for the late July and August doldrums in the North.
