Plant Type: Daylilies

Similar to the highly regarded daylily ‘Bela Lugosi’, this variety offers a shorter height, fragrant blossoms, and more prominent veining in the oval shaped petals.

Large 6″, shimmering dark purple, very sunfast flowers with a chartreuse throat and pie crust ruffled petals are produced midseason.  A high bud count on well-branched scapes ensures many weeks of bloom.

Semi-evergreen tetraploid.

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).
