Plant Type: Daylilies

Large, bittersweet orange tepals with a burnt orange eye. Throat and midribs are both lighter orange-yellow. Petals have crimped edges, sepals are smooth, both are recurved. Very easy to grow. 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).
