Hi Chuck,
We do tend to have cool springs. Even when it is warm during the day the nights remain cool into June. Some early blooming daylilies do not open well here because of it. Sometimes it is even cool for several nights in a row into July.

influence. The pictures I see of it in Schreiners has a more mustard
gold influence and a lot less of the purple. Just curious what you
thought. I do not have any idea what type of soil Schreiners have
where they are at.

It's a good possibility that the variation in colour has to do with
the anthocyanin and temperature. The anthocyanin is a delicate wash in
Thornbird and variations in the amount changes the apperance
dramatically. Anthocyanin can be affected by temperatures and in cold
spring areas it would likely produce more anthocyanin and appear more

purple in Thornbird.
