A.W. SHUCKS A.W. SHUCKS

(Herrington-T, 2014)  4.5 x 26 M Re D  SPIDER Ratio 4:1 Petal Width 1.25 Length 5. It is dark red purple with darker eye on recurved petals and quilled sepals surrounding a larger yellow green throat. Named for A.W. Shucks of  Cornatzer, N.C. who came out of the boondocks in Region 15 and started sharing humor with folks in the daylily world with his “Kernels of Truth” philosophy. His witty & amusing stories are still a main inspiration for me writing humor and history articles in Georgia. This will be a daylily in years to come that you don't need a name tag by it. You will know it is as A.W. SHUCKS. It is a sneaky and deceptive spider. Sometimes the tips of the sepals will turn and show a yellow color.  However it will always dazzle you just like A.W. does with his humor.

Gaudy Grasshopper GAUDY GRASSHOPPER

(Herrington-H, 2015) 34" x 4 3/8", M RE SEV 4-5 branches (Green Derby x sdlg.)  This is a pale pink blend with a huge chartreuse green throat bordered on the petals by a wine purple chevron eye.  I was impressed with this one when it bloomed as just a first year seedling.  I had ran out of room in my seedling beds after it sprouted from a  seed, so I had to plant it at the edge of the property near some large hardwood trees.  Needless to say, I was shocked when it bloomed only after a year, despite many roots from the competing hardwood trees.  Gaudy Grasshopper is a very prolific rebloomer.  It blooms from May to October here.  It is difficult to write how many buds it has because it is a bud builder, meaning the scape at first may seem to only have a certain number of buds, but more and more buds subsequently appear on the scape.  I have seen it have up to 50 buds on one scape.

Katisue Herrington KATISUE HERRINGTON

(Herrington-H, 2013) 8 x 22 M Re D Unusual Form Crispate. Many of you may know this, but for those of you who may not, my late mother grew daylilies for almost 30 years and hybridized many beautiful cultivars.  Thus, I wanted to hybridize a daylily that would honor and exemplify her qualities.  If she had been a flower, she would have been this one.  Her qualities of supporting AHS  and being energetic, hard-working, beautiful, vibrant, and successful are mirrored in this daylily. It is a fuchsia orchid rose blend with darker veins on the petals with intense neon lime green throat outlined with a creamy white edge. It has up to 40 buds with 6-way candelabra branching that often branches even down to the bottom of the plant.  It has a non-paralleled vigor and grows quite fast, just as my mother was always energetic and accomplished.  'Katisue Herrington' has proven to be a great garden plant as well as an excellent show flower.  In 2013, it won an Achievement Medal in the Middle Georgia show.  Since I had to go ahead and register it after it won the Achievement Medal, I entered it in 2014 in the Ogeechee Daylily show and it won Best Unusual Form.  In 2015 it won Best In Show in the Dublin Show. It is very prolific, resulting in a mass of blooms in a clump in about a one-year time period.  I feel it is a breakthrough in daylilies, as it has all the qualities of distinction, bud count, branching, growth habits, exhibition show value, and garden value.  One of the first customers to get this flower sent me this note with a picture he took of it: "Here's a bloom on 'Katisue Herrington' and she is exactly as you described......just incredible!"

REFINED ELEGANCE *REFINED ELEGANCE

(Herrington-H, 2015)  20 x6 1/2"  EM RE EV 3 branches, 12 buds, One of my new goals in hybridizing has been to continue my mother's hybridizing program.  She loved all shapes, sizes, and forms of daylilies, but when she passed away, she was trying to expand her large flower tetraploid hybridizing program.  So, I have been incorporating some of her cultivars into my crosses with other varieties.  Refined Elegance is one of those progenies.  It is from her Pumpkin Pie Crust x Sweet Ole Man.  I must also mention that many large flower tets do not grow well for us here, probably due to the cold winters and a milieu of other environmental factors.  Refined Elegance, however, grows very well here and is quite vigorous.  It has robust foliage and reblooms many times during the season.  It is a blend of neon peach and salmon pink with gold, heavy piecrust edging with light mauve midribs and yellow green throat.  Its unique color combination is very difficult to photograph, and photos don't do it justice.  While many tets get rust, I have never seen this one with rust.  Pod and pollen fertile.

SCENTED SENSIBILITY  *SCENTED SENSIBILITY 

(Herrington-H, 2015)    20"x6", EM RE EV VFr (Blackberry Cupcake x Mary Lois Burgess)  One day as I was walking through the garden, I tried to figure out where the smell of perfume was coming from.  Soon, I realized that the scent was coming from Scented Sensibility.  It is the most fragrant daylily I have ever encountered in my 33 years of growing daylilies.  Its ruffles and scent remind me of the genre of Jane Austin's novels amidst the English countryside, thus the name with the play on words.  It is a magenta rose red 100% double tetraploid with darker veining and dark purple eye and green yellow throat.  It reblooms multiple times here and has beautiful large bluish-green foliage.   I have never seen this tet with rust either.  Fertile both ways.

TOOL MAN TIM TOOL MAN TIM

(Herrington-H, 2014)  25" x 2.87" E RE EV  25" x 2.87", 5 branches, 35 buds (Lollipop Kid x sdlg)  This has been a real knockout in the garden and in shows as well.   It is a light lavender with darker veining and lavender magenta eye encircled by a purple pencil eye with bright green throat.  To me, it looks even more mesmerizing at the end of the day after it has been in the full sun.  The foliage is robust and it blooms 4-5 months here.  I have crossed this daylily with some large flowers and gotten large flower seedlings with interesting patterns.  Named for my father, Tim Herrington, who  has a degree in Industrial Arts and is a talented builder.  Tool Man Tim won a 2014 Achievement Medal in the Savannah Show and was winner of best miniature in the 2015 Ogeechee Show.  Very fertile both ways.

It is very difficult to find an orange double unusual form/spider type daylily.
