Lamp unto My Feet
(Rold, 2017)

LampLamp

LampLamp

35”, 3.25”, extra early season, dormant, diploid, instant rebloom,
Crispate Unusual Form, 4 branches, 16 buds, nocturnal, extended
Fertile both ways

Mignon x Silver Drops

Lamp unto My Feet starts blooming in late May in mid-Missouri zone 5b and continues with 3 staggered rounds of instant rebloom on slender moderately dark scapes until mid-season. It is nocturnal - the dark buds are fully open by sunset, but take on the unusual form by morning. Back of the blooms show the dark reverse of the sepals. Blooms are still fresh at sunset for a full 24 hours showing.
The name comes from the Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. (KVJ)
This bright and very early cultivar has been a season extender and strong parent in my small UF line. A seedling from it is registered as Light unto My Path because it begins blooming just as this pod parent ends. Together they not only make a full verse, but continuous presence of this color, size and form in the garden for more than 8 weeks.

Lamp unto My Feet x (Mignon x (Sweeter Music x H. yezoensis)

Light unto My Path starts blooming right before peak bloom in mid-Missouri zone 5b and continues with instant rebloom.
The name comes from the Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. (KVJ)
This bright cheerful yellow cultivar starts blooming just as its extra early pod parent (Lamp unto My Feet) ends in mid-season. It is slightly larger, more ruffled and of more refined form than the parent. Together they not only make a full verse, but continuous presence of this color, size and form in the garden for more than 8 weeks. The pairing is easy to remember in that Lamp/Feet come before Light/Path alphabetically and in bloom!

 

Prayer Wheel Turning

34”, 3.25”, mid-season, dormant, diploid, instant rebloom, variable form, 
4 branches, 20 buds.
Fertile both ways

Itsy Bitsy Spider x Heavenly Angel Ice
This sweet little cream bloom with a yellow throat is quite variable in form but more of an ”exotic” than an unusual form. Bloom size can range from 3-3.5 inches depending on the form. The scapes are strong and upright with 2 lateral branches and a terminal Y. The blooms are still fresh to be enjoyed in the evening when backlit by the setting sun.

Like the turn of Tibetan prayer wheel or the offerings of a Christian prayer group this cultivar lifts up new variations each day.

 

Ray of Cheer
(Rold, 2017)

30”, 4”, mid-season, dormant, diploid, instant rebloom,
Crispate Unusual Form, 3 branches, 11 buds.
Fertile both ways

(Golden Scroll x Small Wonder) x Tripod Novelty

This small flower brightens the garden for 6 weeks in mid–season. The light salmon petals originate from an orange throat and are accented with a rounded coral band which contrasts nicely with the twist and quill of the sepals. The bloom has good substance and is wind and rain-fast.
The distinctive bloom reminds me of a good friend who loves the old hymns and is himself a Ray of Cheer in our church, warmly and enthusiastically greeting all who attend or visit. Here in zone 5b this cultivar reblooms for six weeks with 1 lateral branch and a terminal Y. Seedlings from it have included hot pink unusual forms.

 

 

 


Grace Upon Grace

Registered LilyRegistered Lily

39”, 3.25”, mid-season, dormant, diploid, instant rebloom, variable crispate/spatulate
Unusual Form, 3 branches, 21 buds.

(Adam Jerald x H. yezoensis) x (H. yezoensis x Sweeter Music)

Almost a miniature if it wasn’t so expressive! More than 6 weeks of bloom.
The name comes from the title of a sermon I heard on John 1:16, “And from His fullness have we all received grace upon grace” (RSV).

This cheerful flower with its small, bright, variable form reminds me
of our many blessings that are new each day.
