Traveling all over the world to speak to all kinds of lily-lovers out there has not just been something unexpected to ever happen (regardless of how hard I've worked at this gig)... but has also turned out to be one of the most fantastic aspects of messin' with lilies to begin with! This gorgeous new cultivar is dedicated to a very special meeting that occurred when traveling to visit the great folks of the Nat'l Capital Daylily Club, near Washington, D.C..

As with ALL clubs I visit, I had asked if it would be possible to stay with a member while there (it really does make a difference... SO much more fun than a hotel, and offers MUCH better op to get to know the area I'm there to visit!). There indeed have been times this has backfired a bit on me, but THIS was not one of them! Though I had corresponded with these folks several times in the past, I was in NO way prepared for the positively DELIGHTFUL... Jerry and Faith Bange! The two of them are tremendously unique (I'd say "slightly different" here, but it's just not enough!)... the dynamics between them downright entertaining, and sheer proof to the old saying that "opposites attract". Jerry is a fella that might be called "dead serious"... but after sitting up and talking with him into the wee hours, I must say one of the most intensely interesting and thoughtful people I've ever met! Faith (on the complete other hand)... is nothing short of a HUGE ball of energy (though quite petit herself), just bursting at the seams in her total love and devotion to her STUNNING gardens (and of course, her wonderful daylilies).

I wanted to pick a flower to name for Faith (who also goes by "Fay") that was as pure of heart as she so obviously is as well. This stunning beauty has the most buttery orange self I've ever managed to create here, and the very best of gently looping ruffles to accentuate it with! Moreover, this flower is PERFECT... EVERY time!!! LOVE "consistency", and this beauty HAS IT!!!! Ankle-sized fans are amazing to see... so healthy! So clear (and elegant) at heart, and yet incredibly vivacious in her performance... I could find none better to bestow with such a GRAND gal's name! Thanks, Jerry and Faith... for ALL you do!!!
