Tiki God
Parentage: {(Breed Apart x Momentum) x Be Thine}
2 - 4 way

This first bloomed in 1997 in our New Hampshire gardens, and I wanted to see if it was consistent in its form. It always bloomed fully bibbed in New Hampshire and once in a blue moon semi-bibbing occurred. I thought I would introduce it when we moved down to North Carolina in 2007. Well since we have moved down here, it has bloomed single full form for the first time, so needless to say I was a little skeptical at that point in introducing it, so I held it back for three more years while playing around with it. This is our second year at registering and introducing daylilies, when we published our spring 2011 introductions, there were quite a few prominent hybridizers who were surprised that I hadn't introduced it. So with some prodding, here we are finally introducing it for delivery this spring 2011. To say that this cultivar is unique and distinctive is an understatement. In fact the American Hemerocallus Society Scientific Committee has only just recently established a category for this new form. Tiki God's form is "Sculpted Cristated."

It is a extremely light pink. It sometimes looks like a near white, with a much darker rose/pink eye. A yellow throat that leads to a very dark olive green heart. The edge is very ruffled extending into the heart and at the very edge of the ruffling it is serrated. Added to the mix is an inverted midrib. It has 2-4 way branching and reblooms, but can be top branched in the north. It is very pollen fertile, but pods takes a lot of persistence, but it does set viable seeds. This serrated, sculpted bibbed form is certainly a new "look" on the daylily scene, and one that certainly needs more discovery. I have it crossed into most forms. I also have crossed into a complete line of doubles to see what will happen, and all I can say at this time is it is magical. Truly a gem.
