Numbers Game (Sobek 98)

Numbers Game (Sobek 98) 28 E 3.5, Lemon Self, Dor Dip Noc Ext
White Formal * Stella de Oro

Sorry! This IS a lemon yellow; but it looks like a daylily tree. This child of Stella's maximum bud-count is only fifty! Sort of a knee-high daylily, I forgave its not reblooming when it blooms reliably from 6/27 or so to about 8/10.

Flourish Of Trumpets (Sobek 98) 40 L 6, Yellow Self, Dor Dip
Bountiful Valley * Rain Forest (= Cool Spice * Beauty To Behold)

This is a Cool Spice grandchild. It has an unusual combination of large creped greenish-yellow flowers, supurb branching and lateness along with the unique shape that is really a modified trumpet; the base of the trumpet is rounded giving almost a lily-flowered tulip shape.
