Author Stephen Dobyns wrote a series of detective stories that featured a down-at-the-heels detective, Charlie Bradshaw. Charlie was fortunate to have a longtime girlfriend of somewhat ample proportions that he called his “Queen of Softness.” When Bob and I looked at this daylily, the name just seemed perfect. Voluptuous ruffles with some sculpting into the throat, delicate pastel peach, soft rose eye, and light gilding on the edges combine to make this a very feminine flower indeed. But make no mistake, like the literary “Queen of Softness” she’s one tough cookie. With 24 buds, 4-way branching, the clump is in bloom for a long time. Parent ‘Paula Heisen’ contributes easy opening and superior scape. Nicely fertile both ways. (Paula Heisen x Wonder of it All)
