Freudian Slip




Freudian Slip is a beautiful daylily hybridized by Curt Hanson in 1999. It's got such a wonderful name it's hard not to get psychoanalytical about it.

A very striking bloom, Chey -- won't it be grand when we finally see some of these delectable blooms again?!!

Hi Chey, wonderful daylily and you are right, the name is hard to resist. Don't you think the naming of the daylilies is nearly as important as their looks, to distinguish themselves from their look alike siblings? We love daylilies here and will begin seeing them in June, with the early 'Pardon Me' usually starting the last of May. We don't have the early Stella, they require too much dividing here. Can't wait to see what you've got!

Hi Frances, I most definitely agree. The name of the daylily sets it apart from the others, and has the ability to give it that extra edge or appeal.

Oh, it is so beautiful I want to cry. That's what daylilies do to me. I won't see one for a few months at least. But at least I can enjoy yours while I'm waiting.

They are gorgeous, they have planted daylily and irises all over town and they are just so pretty.

Kay and Phillip..thanks for visiting and as well for your kind comments.

No rain..I just started hybridizing in 2005. My first seedlings bloomed in 2007:).

Not so crafty..that sounds wonderful!
