'Timberdoodle Sunset' was named by Bernard Jackson and is registered in his honour. Bernard Jackson came to Newfoundland in 1958 and served on the Wildlife Park Advisory Committee and helped to form the Salmonier Nature Park. Memorial University of Newfoundland asked him to develop the Oxen Pond Botanical Park (renamed MUN Botanical Garden) and he oversaw its development from 1971 to 1993. After moving to Truro, Nova Scotia he designed and helped install the rock gardens at the Dalhousie Agricultural Campus in Truro and helped to establish the volunteer group Friends of the Gardens to help maintain the campus gardens. Bernard is a wealth of information about plants and has made significant contributions to landscape gardening in eastern Canada. Therefore, he is especially worthy of having the daylily 'Timberdoodle Sunset' registered in his honour. Timberdoodle is actually another name for the Woodcock. Bernard remembers from when he was younger, seeing woodcock flying out of the woods at sunset and this inspired the name 'Timberdoodle Sunset'. The parents of 'Timberdoodle Sunset' are 'Lloyd's Hillendale Sunrise' and 'Heavenly Orange Blaze'. This daylily is an early season bloomer with 3-4 way branching on the scapes and an average bud count of 15 buds per scape. The flower is a bitone with dark burnt orange petals and lighter orange sepals mixed with golden yellow. It has a bright golden yellow triangular throat that maximizes the distinctiveness of the bitone flower. It is of average height at 32" tall but the flower is fairly large at 6", which helps it to be quite noticeable. If you're always anxious for the daylily bloom season to begin, this is a variety that blooms early and is a good choice for kickstarting your daylily season with a distinctive standout flower. Double Fan (DF) $60.00.
