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.
- 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.
