A uniquely shaped daylily that is easily recognizable in a crowd. Triangular, pale yellow petals have a large wine purple eye and a razor thin wine purple edge. An improved 'El Desperado', this variety has an improved flower form, a higher bud count, good branching, rebloom, and a slightly earlier bloom season compared to its predecessor.
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)
Midseason Bloomer, blooming in July.
Rebloomer, producing a second set of flowers.
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.
