TET ( tetra Crystal Blue Persuasion x tetra In The Navy )
26" EM Evergreen emo v.fr 4 1/4" 4 way branching 18 buds. Fertile both ways.
BLUE DRAGON is a blue daylily with fleshy pink flowers with a large blue eye zone. The wait is over for the much desired blue parent of my blue eyed hybridizing program. The throat is a deep green starburst, which transforms into charcoal, almost an illusion. Several shades of blue are apparent in the eye, 8 colors in all. Such can be more or less depending on environmental conditions. Starting at the throat, colors are deep green, yellow, charcoal, light blue, blue, baby blue, deep blue, lavender pink, lavender purple, light maroon, and deep maroon. And if that is not enough it has a small gold edge on petals and a rose pink rim on the sepals. Sepals are reverse bicolor. Sepals also carry the pattern, but are hidden in this photo. It has been a tremendous parent for hybridizing for blue dayliles. It is producing better sunfast blue patterned kids than itself, some of which are dormant. Blue Dragon is a break through in blue pattern breeding at the tet level. The power of utilizing BLUE DRAGON can not be under estimated due to the fact that it is Conversion on Conversion hybridizing. Blue Dragon is Northern Hardy. Very Limited......$50 Double fans
