(Kirchhoff 2000) 32" ML Re Ex VFR Ev 6 ½ - 7". Named for Margaret Tucker a daylily friend from Jacksonville. Margaret is a gracious hostess, avid daylily connoisseur and a fine grower of daylilies. She and her grandson Chris, hybridize daylilies together. Margaret Tucker's blooms are flashes of flaming, brilliant mango, pink and peach, with lime green throats. They're as giant neon sculptures - immense and clear. When the nights are quite cool, the outer petals open out flat. As the temperatures reach into lows in the 70's, and highs into the upper 80's, the outer petals begin to roll back. Though opening early, there is sunfast color and substance to spare. Blooms are opulently formed and consistently double in peony or petaloid style, with plenty of ruffles. The strongly recurrent scapes possess widely spaced, 4 - 5 way branching. Pollen is very fertile and kids are outstanding. Pods are difficult, though not impossible. Supply is extremely limited. [(Layers Of Gold x Ruffled Dude) X (Champagne Chilling x Ed Kirchhoff) x Tet Double Decker] 99% double.
