RE: TB: Vibrant

From: "Title, CDR Lynn A." <titlel@spawar.navy.mil>

I love yellows as well, though they're MUCH easier than other color
collections  (the yellow garden bed is a bit down the row from the Black
Bed, with golden variations from the first crocuses to the last mums,
centered on yellow roses in an arch, against a background of double kerria).
I've been looking for a schoolbus-yellow iris, preferrably a rebloomer,
preferrably with an orange/red beard - and last fall I fell in love with
RONEY'S ENCORE, a sweet-scented ruffled orangey-yellow with a tangerine
beard.  Wintergreen Gardens sells it - I'll be bringing it home from our
area AIS sale this weekend!

A wonderful yellow daylily is tetraploid SOMBRERO WAY - a rebloomer, again
on the orangey side, ruffled, and with a lemon rim to the petals.

Hey Perry, that's good to know!  (Sound of hissing as wet finger is touched 
to hip).

Every year I find my obsessions running in different patterns.  This year, 
I'm in love with yellow in all its forms.  VIBRANT looked to be a screaming 
yellow, and I've also ordered KITTY DYER from yourownself - a more elegant 
flower (with the flaring falls I find so appealing).

In daylilies too, this year is my yellow period.  From the schoolbus color
STELLA, to the palest lemon of BREATHLESS MAHONEY, yellow is the color du 
jour at the Stately Guest Manse.

BIG SQUEEZE (TB iris) was also on the auction block at the picnic, but 
oranges can be tricky here...... and I don't do tricky very well.

England today to visit a friend and I am swaying between frantic worry and 
undisguised envy
