Inside Informer is a luscious shade of purple in your pic, so it is hard to imagine it better. Two Sues is also striking.

RE: Some Hansons from yesterday

Love those colors together. Ah girl, that photo of Primal Scream with the Bee Balm is gorgeous! Black Falcon Ritual is beautiful!
To me, Exquisitely Subversive always looks as if it has been painted. Your photos are gorgeous today. Lovely post.

RE: Some Hansons from yesterday

I really like the photo of Primal Scream, & love Black Falcon Ritual. Elmore James is lookin' good too.

RE: Some Hansons from yesterday

Beautiful flowers! All those purples! Esp like Exquisitely Subversive and Inside Informer.
I only grow two older Hansons and both don't open that third petal right :s

RE: Some Hansons from yesterday

I think the trio of Exquisitely Subversive is my favorite today. Point of Divergence has a pretty blooms and very impressive scapes. I think that one should go on the Best Budded list! Primal Scream looks fantastic with the purple monarda. Great combo!

He does some nice purples. Particularly like the colors on Black Falcon Ritual. I don't know what you'd call the color on the first one, Catastrophe Waitress, but it is one intriguing daylily. The crepe texture just adds to its interest...........Maryl

RE: Some Hansons from yesterday

Great photos! I think my favorite of the group is Primal Scream because it's such a great combo with the bee balm.

RE: Some Hansons from yesterday

Like the color combos of Two Sues. Great pictures from zone 6! Things are slowing down quickly here in 5.


RE: Some Hansons from yesterday

Thanks for all the nice comments.

Kay, I agree that in pictures Exquisitely Subversive looks like it's been painted - I think it's the metallic edge and the shape of the flowers. To me, Lounge Lizard has the same effect for the same reasons.

Nat, I have some older Hansons and older ones from other hybridizers that do the sticking out third petal thing too - I'm not a fan of that.

Debra, I will try to make a point of doing a bud count on POD in the next week or so!

RE: Some Hansons from yesterday

I was just outside and did a little deadheading... POD has two scapes coming out of at least three fans - I noticed that on one fan a couple of weeks ago and thought I'd take a closer look. Got to love instant rebloom!

Also, Inside Informer has some crazy branching. I know it's hard to tell in this picture with the green background, but that is only four scapes. I will do bud counts at some point.

RE: Some Hansons from yesterday

sure some beautiful photos. That first photo with the flowers in the background is soo pretty. beautiful daylily and them flowers just make it shine.Elmore James is such a beauty, too. with so many beauties to see,i sure can not pick out a favorite from them, They are all gorgeous.
