2nd Trip to Borglum plus

The second visit to Borglum's was well after bloom season. Most of the Daylilies were also done, but I got a beutiful clump of "Shock Wave," a brilliant solid orange.

The primary reason for the trip was to get some more solid stock in preparing for my shipment to David Cupps. The Dykes Medal collection is getting more complete. I had Silverado and Dusky Challenger from David, but one did not survive las winter and the other was not very vigorous. I asked Dana about Starwoman. "That one the Dykes Medal? It's an intermediate or smaller. I think I have a clump and I break you off a few." Indeed it is intermediate an winning the Dykes was an accomplishment. I can't wait to see it and David got a rhizome.

I have included "Vision in Pink" from my first Borglum visit and Italian Velvet a bonus from Schreiner's.
