MONDAY ' JUNE S, 1964, loke Chorles American Prest W GARDEN RAMBLES Hebert Qarden Benefits Sweet Lake By MAE STEPHENS | seedling which is outstanding. A velvety, dark-red blooming HER GARDEN GROWS WITH A BOUNTY OF HYBRIDIZED DAYLILIES - Mrs. Charles W. " 1 ---; -.nnuiics Sweel Lako community with gifts from her blossom-filled garden. Mrs. Charles W. Hebert of Sweet Lake has found many ways to enrich her community with the bounty from her garden. She has a large yard which has been cut out of the rice and cattle farm which she and Mr. Hebert operate near Sweet Lake. The yard is fenced and is bordered with an outstanding collection of daylilies which frame their white home, fill the back yard and spill over Into a garden plot beyond. Mrs. Hebert purchased named varieties of lilies from nurseries, was given others by friends and has hybridized still others to fill her yard. She enjoys the challenge Df hybridizing to develop new colors or forms. "I pick out the colors T like and try to come up with something new," she says. Hybridizing is done by dusting the pollen of one parent plant upon the reproductive seed parts of another plant. The mature seeds are allowed to rippen, and are then planted. The young plants will often bloom in two years and may resemble either of the parents or may be a blend of the two. The painstaking care that goes into hybridizing a new plant is more than repaid when a desirable cross results. Mrs. Hebert is fond of the mauve colored flowers she secured from plants which she had crossed. She has well over two hundred named varieties in her yard and countless un-named hybrids. There is an almost while, or pale chartreuse L.S.U. flower came from Mr. McMillen of Abbeville. "Black Hill" is a black - red variety. "Royal Guest" and "Crimson Star" are lovely, dark reds, and "Citation" is best described as a laquered red. Most daylilies close at the end of the day, but Mrs. Hebert has several which last well into the night. A yellow blooming variety, "Banner," is a night bloomer. It is difficult to pick favorites Mrs. Hebert says, but she is partial to a large rose-colored one named "Katherine Taylor." Other outstanding plants grown by Mrs. Hebert are; "Agnes Godcheaux," a velvet wine, "Quincy," a salmon marked with purple; "H i g h Noon," a deep orange; "Rudolph," a large red with green throat; "Miss Jessie," a lavender and yellow bi-color, and a yellow, "Dauntless." An eye-catching ruffled gold lily is called "Capri." "Dazzling Eye" is yellow with wine markings. "Painted Lady" is cinnamon colored. "Purple Waters" and "Black Magic" are good purples. "Royal Togo" is a black-purple. Beds in the back are filled with plants to be used for cutting. Roses, glads, bells of Ireland, Iris, amaryllis, chrysanthemums and various annuals are used. Mrs. Hebert serves as flower chairman for her church and furnishes an arrangement each Sunday. Flowers for gradua- tion exercises at Grand Lake | for planting af»er hurricane School come from her yard each ; Audrey, year as well as corsages for the ' girl graduates. Sixteen sacks of .... _ were sent to the Oak Park area: ed plants to club members and Mrs. Hebert is a member ot daylilies i several clubs and has dislribut- of Lake Charles to be used for beautification. A car-load of lil- lies were sent to the Library building in Cameron. The Sweet Lake Methodist Church grounds were planted with lilies and others were given to individuals lo children in 4-H work. The beauty of her yard is well-known among her neighbors, but she is better known for her unselfishness in making her community a more beautiful place in which to live.
