Vanilla Gorilla (Huben 2008) 44 M 8, Cream Self, Dor Dip Ufo

MH0168 = (Jerry's Whirligig * Magic Of Oz)
Price: $20 DF


Honorable Mention award 2013!

This daylily is named for Snowflake, the albino gorilla, who recently died.

This UFO measures about 8 inches, and has been drawing a great deal of attention at Carl Harmon's garden. Apparently, it's finding a wide following in lovers of UFO's. 5 to 6 way branching, 20 to 24 buds. Pod and pollen fertile. This was a fun cross, partly to test the pod fertility of the enormous Jerry's Whirligig, and partly to see what happens in the way of large offspring.

Like Jerry's Whirligig, Vanilla Gorilla has wide petals in a cascade form: it reminds me of knuckle walking with the massive arms of a gorilla. Now, you could say some daylilies knuckle walk because the scapes fall, but Vanilla Gorilla's scapes stay upright.

I'm so focussed on my reblooming goals, that I essentially ignored this one, and it was rescued by Carl. Let this be a lesson to new hybridizers: trust other people to evaluate your plants and tell you what else is good.
