~ 2015 INTRODUCTIONS ~

the Woodlands Series.....

My 3 introductions for 2015 are from a new line, The Woodlands Series. These consist of spider & unique form daylilies,  & present the gardener & landscaper with graceful blooms, suitable for any garden, be it urban or cottage. The Woodlands series is perfect for naturalizing any setting. The line is out of Arlow Stouts 1953 introduction, Poinsettia. Those who are familiar with Poinsettia know of it’s fabulous candelabra branching, which it readily passes on to it’s offspring. All plants in The Woodlands Series are easily pod & pollen fertile.

Woodlands Baltimore Oriole.....

Woodlands Baltimore Oriole captures the beauty of it’s namesake in spatulate form, with it’s vivid yellow self. The color holds very well in extreme heat & rain. Spider ratio is 4:1. The bright yellow self has a light, white mid rib, & is accented with a fulvous, or russet, reverse, making it a elegant specimen in any setting.  Like it’s other Woodland’s sibs & cousins, this cultivar is clearly a standout with a strong garden presence. Scapes average 45”, strong & well branched. It has a BC average of 24.



AHS Database:  Height 45 in.(114 cm), bloom 5 in.(20 cm), season MLa, Semi-Evergreen, Diploid, Fragrant, 24 buds, 5 branches, Spider Ratio 4.00:1, Unusual Form Spatulate,  Birght yellow, white midrib, fulvous russet reverse. (Poinsettia × Maximum Warp)

Woodlands Scarlet Ibis.....

Woodlands Scarlet Ibis captures the red-orange hot coloring of it’s pod parent, Poinsettia, on a more elongated, open, recurving form. The color holds very well in extreme heat & rain. Spider ratio is 4:1. The bright red-orange color is accented with a prominent creamy yellow mid rib, emanating from it’s bright yellow throat. There is a trace of a darker chevron band above the throat on the petals. Like it’s other Woodland’s cousins, this cultivar is clearly a standout with a strong garden presence. Scapes are tall, strong & well branched, with an average bud count of 33.

Woodlands Yellow Warbler.....

Woodlands Yellow Warbler captures the beauty of it’s namesake in a pure spider form.  Spider ratio is 4:1. The bright yellow self is accented with a fulvous, or russet, reverse, mimicking the underside barring of it’s namesake. The color holds very well in extreme heat & rain.  Like it’s other Woodland’s sibs & cousins, this cultivar is clearly a standout with a strong garden presence.
