We’ve been working for years to build up enough stock of this distinctive daylily. It easily stood out to all who passed by in our trials because it is one of those flowers that looks so perfect you have to touch it to see if it’s real.
There’s certainly nothing “cheesy” about this daylily, though the light yellow flower color may remind you of Monterrey Jack cheese. A well-defined, raspberry red eye and lighter midribs really stand out on the glimmering diamond dusted flowers. Their broad, rounded petals open wide and flat to 5 1/2" across, making them appear even larger. Each exquisitely ruffled flower is of perfect form and they are displayed nicely on the candelabra-branched scapes.
This daylily is a strong grower that blooms early in the daylily season, so it will be in bloom when you are shopping for summer color at the garden center.
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.
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).
