I need some help on this one.

Postby redcrx » May 11, 2014 8:32 am

Getting some photos yesterday and noticed this one is not on my map. It's the one on the right - green with thin gold edge. Liberty is at the bottom with Regal Supreme above it. Dick Ward is on the left.
Thanks.

Hmm, maybe something like Atlantis or Zippity Do Dah, or maybe Yellow River? Do you think it is something rare or more common?

It should be common. Here are some better photos from yesterday and it's coming into flower.

This is a close-up of some leaves in the first photo:

It might be Counter Point. I've been tracking old photos and I did get 2 in 2011. But I know where they are - it may have been a fragment off of one of them. I'll know when the flower opens if the netting can keep the rabbits off of it (or the deer).

It reminds me of Victory, but you would think the leaves would be bigger. (Mine aren't, but I'm in Texas.)

I vote 'Yellow River'.

Best,

I say Yellow River too, certainly has montana in its genes.

Thanks folks, I'm thinking it's Yellow River. It has developed a montana look to it. I went back in my photos and found I had picked up a Yellow River around the time the garden was being filled back in 2011. One odd point is that when I picked up the plant it was going into flower and the anthers were dark purple. This plant has flowered with light anthers and the Hosta Library photos of Yellow River show it flowering with light anthers (from what you can tell in the photo).
