 Tet 4 1/4" Dor 38" M, Every once in awhile something pops out which changes the way we look at our hybridizing goals. When Shooting stars bloomed, Matthew Kaskel said it was one of the most important flowers hybridized for years. I laughed, however I have came to understand what he meant. Daylilies should have branching which moves up and around the scape so that flowers do not interfere with adjacent flowers. Foliage should be low. Scapes should be sturdy and do not lean. Flowers must be seen at a great distance. Plants must be disease resistant. Kaskel utilized the genes from Shooting stars, seedlings which could easily be identified from 1,000s of other crosses. Heavenly Shooting Stars was completely rust resistant in his garden. Shooting Stars is mini golden yellow flower which floats in the breeze, has all the characteristics discussed. My son, Corey has 4,000 seedlings from Shooting Stars, many of which are outstanding. It has 4-6 way branching and 22+ bud count. Extremely fertile both ways. An extremely important landscaping plant. Will be in the genetics of lot of the future landscaping plants, both for the North and South. It is a hard dormant. Extremely drought and flood proof.
