Naples LaTour (2017)
Naples LaTour (2017) (Best Kept Secret x Rose Impact) X Sassy Sally
Tetraploid 5.5”, 28”, Dormant, Early Midseason, 3 branches, 12 buds, fertile. Named for a literary character I invented to convey a memory of youthful longing. There is no face like Naples LaTour's and none like this special daylily. Round baby ribbon pink bitone of heavy substance, with a tight ruffle and tiny cream edge. Blunt sepals are a creamy melon pink. Grooved texture emerges from a glowing throat with colors of melon, orange, lemon, and green. Soft cream midribs. Distinctive narrow fountain foliage perfectly complements these haunting flowers. Blooms over a month.
I rehashed the stories of Frank and Naples on my Blog of July, 2015.
