PEEKABOO I SEE YOU
PEEKABOO I SEE YOU (Joiner, J. 2018) Tet-Dbl-Ev-M-Re-S34”-B7”Playing hide and seek with sunlight, this peach based color is over-washed in coral with accents of tangerine, cantaloupe, melon, and rose. Tightly ruffled with a thin diamond dusted edge, it has petaloids rising from the extended yellow throat. PEEKAPOO I SEE YOU is fragrant with 7 way branching and a bud count of 30. This lovely double TET is set on dark green evergreen foliage with scapes of 34” bearing the 7” spectacular bloom. A midseason bloomer, it is also a great rebloomer, very fragrant, and has proliferations as well. It won an Achievement Award at the Ogeechee Daylily Show. One day, as I showed this bloom to a friend, a tiny green spring frog peeped at me from under the petals, and my immediate response was “Peekaboo, I see you!” He blinked at me in surprise as I snapped his photo, clearly wanting me to go play hide and seek with someone of my own size. I moved away as quietly as I could, allowing his to await his nap…and tasty bugs… in peace. This one is for you, little froggie, for making your home in my garden.
