Hybridizer notes:

(Rock Solid X Tetra Peppermint Delight) 38 MRe. emo. fr. Ev. 6.5 x 3 x 2. 5-way branching (3 laterals plus terminal y). 40-45 buds.

This wonderful sib to CHRISTOPHER MOODY is like a super ROCK SOLID on steroids. THOMAS TEW comes in a little later than most of the Tetra Peppermint Delight seedlings but what a dramatic impact it makes with huge cream flowers with dramatic black plum eyes and huge chartreuse throats on very tall well branched scapes. The old convention that you got the plant habit from the pod parent and the flower from the pollen parent is born out in this flower. The tall well branched scapes come from ROCK SOLID but the flower size and dramatic eye is from the pollen parent. Our tallest and best branched daylily from Tetra Peppermint Delight.
An exciting addition to the class of huge eyes on huge flowers. Fertile both ways.
