A showy daylily that will stop you in your tracks as it blooms in midsummer! Rich, rosy red flowers have a creamy yellow, incredibly ruffled picotee edge. A narrow pale pink watermark appears above the lime green throat. Although registered at 28", we have observed this daylily to be shorter at 20-22".
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 Bloomers, blooming in July.
- Rebloomer, producing a second set of flowers.
- Evergreen 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.
