This daylily from Walters Gardens hybridizer Chris Meyer (of 'Going Bananas' fame) has taken over a decade to reach critical mass in production and has outperformed a ruthless selection process to make our catalog. 5", pastel pink flowers have a very wide, wine purple eye with a matching purple picotee edge on the ruffled margins. Petals open flat, maximizing the floral display.
Daylilies can survive many harsh conditions that other plants cannot including: polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, near pavement that is salted in winter, and under Black Walnut trees (not affected by juglone).
Characteristics (Compared to Other Daylilies)
- Early Midseason Bloomer, blooming in early July.
- Rebloomer, producing a second set of flowers.
- Fragrant flowers.
- Dormant foliage.
- Tetraploid with 44 chromosomes, twice as many as Diploids. Tetraploids tend to be bigger, stronger plants.
This is considered a premium daylily, which means that it has been selected as highly performing plant with exceptional bloom performance, substantive, vibrantly colored flowers, complete winter hardiness in northern zones, and a vigorous habit.
