'Blood, Sweat and Tears' is aptly named to reference the years of hard work by renowned breeder Karol Emmerich to find a truly exceptional red daylily. Massive 6" raspberry red flowers are complemented by a wide rosy pink eye that leads to a yellow throat. A thin white margin edges each petal. Flowers are held on proportionate scapes, just above the foliage. There are no hardiness concerns with this red daylily as it was bred and selected in Minnesota.
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).
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. Out of the hundreds of varieties we have evaluated for our catalog, we consider this to be one of the 20 best we have available.
