I think ever since Steve Moldovan brought a bloom of his daylily, Piece of Sky out of his refrigerator in the guest house many years ago, I have been fascinated by the world of blue eyed daylilies. I really think it was Elizabeth Salter’s diploids that opened the door for many of the blue eyed daylilies you see in commerce now.  The advances are happening quickly and with the conversion of Richard Norris’s Pigment of Imagination, I think a fully blue self bloom isn’t that far off.  Here are some of the most cutting edge blue eyed daylilies out there: (starting with blue eyes on cream backgrounds)
