Plant Type: Hostas
The “eyes” have it with this brilliant daylily! Golden orange flowers display a very prominent, sienna red eye that covers at least half of the petals and a matching red, extra wide picotee, ruffled edge. There is almost more red than orange in this daylily because of it’s exceptionally large eye. The colors are clear and vibrant, making quite a statement, even from a distance. The thick, gold dusted petals glimmer in the summer sun.
Narrow, well-branched scapes carry the colorful 4-5″ blossoms in midsummer.
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).
