Flower quality on a yellow daylily doesn’t get much better than this. We have been incredibly impressed with the consistent outstanding, refined flower form and color of this cultivar.
The broad, rounded flower is a sunny golden yellow complete self – all parts of the flower are the same color – edged in unusually fringed, frilly ruffles. The petals open flat, making the flowers look even larger than they are. They remain in this perfect condition all day even though they are open for at least 16 hours apiece.
Strong, well-branched, heavily budded scapes carry the large 5½-6" blossoms in midseason. In our fields, we noted that this cultivar reblooms in late summer, though it is not officially registered as a rebloomer.
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.
