Hemerocallis 'Daring Deception'

Common Name: Daylily

  • 5½", dusty cream-pink self with a large, dark purple eye and green throat
  • Petals overlap, creating a uniquely shaped eyezone
  • Petals have dark purple picotee, pie crust edges; sepals have smooth borders

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.
  • Semi-Evergreen foliage.
  • Tetraploid with 44 chromosomes, twice as many as Diploids. Tetraploids tend to be bigger, stronger plants.
