Daylily Frans Halls

By Flory – 1955

This historic daylily was named for the old Dutch painter Frans Halls who’s famous work “The Laughing Cavalier” surely inspired the name. The bi-colored flowers of bright rusty orange/red alternating with solid gold surely brings a happy chuckle to the garden. This classic mid to late season bloomer holds 4 ½ flowers atop 24 inch well branched scapes. A dormant diploid, it is also a heavy bloomer, a good grower, and sports a creamy yellow midrib on the red petals.

Daylily Double River Wye

By Kropf  – 1992

daylily-double-river-wye-21This is a light yellow double with a green throat that is 4 ½ inches. It is a dormant diploid which blooms mid-season and then re-blooms. I love this daylily for its loose form; it’s not tightly arranged like most double daylilies.  It looks almost like a yellow peony.


Daylily Condilla

By Grooms – 1977

daylily-condilla1This 4 1/2″ double bloom is a glowing gold that really pops especially in part shade.  The 20″ tall plants are early-mid season re-bloomers. The petals have little ruffled edges and she has beautiful form, opening perfectly every time.  A dormant, diploid, she is a winner of the Award of Merit, the Lenington All American Award and the Ida Munson Award for Best Double.

Daylily Bitsy

By Warner, 1963

daylily-bitsy1This miniature daylily sports 2″ blooms on a plant that only stands 12-18″ tall. A 2002 All American Daylily Selection, this extra-early bloomer will re-bloom heavily.  She is a semi-evergreen, diploid with masses of petite blooms that are light yellow with a green throat, above grassy foliage. This daylily is also nocturnal so it is perfect for the moon garden and another interesting trait is that the flower scapes are dark in color so that in the dark the flowers seem to float.

Daylily Raspberry Pixie

By Williamson – 1969

daylily-raspberry-pixie1This is a miniature daylily growing to only 1 ½ feet with 2 ½ inch blooms.  The plant is an evergreen, diploid with fragrant fuchsia blossoms that blooms and re-blooms starting mid-season.


Daylily Ming Toy

By Wheeler – 1947

daylily-ming-toy1This is a mini daylily that stays less than 15 inches.  It starts blooming early and keeps blooming with a mass of 3 inch red flowers.  These red flowers won’t fade or spot in hot sun. They hold the bright red/orange well and the throat is a very bright gold.  Sometimes the edges are also touched in gold.  Evergreen; diploid.


Daylily Wineberry Candy

By Stamile 1980
Daylily Wineberry candy1Wineberry is a favorite member of the “candy” series. It is a slightly fragrant, dormant tetraploid that is a mid-season rebloomer. The 4.5 inch bright pink flowers have a dark purple/magenta eye-zone. They seem to get darker as they age. She has won the Stout Silver Medal, L. Ernest Plouf Award and an AHS Award of Merit.


Daylily Raspberry Candy

By Stamile 1993

Another beauty in the “Candy” series; this slightly fragrant dormant tetraploid starts early and then reblooms. The 4.5 inch blooms seem to be a different color at different times in the season. A google image search will verify this. Sometimes the blooms are cream/pink and sometimes more pale yellow. These pictures are from the same plant. The eye-zone is always a bright raspberry red hence the name. She is the winner of a L. Ernest Plouf Award.


Daylily Puddin

By Kennedy – 1972

Daylily Puddin1Here is a little miniature night blooming daylily that will be perfect for the front of your moon garden. At only 20” tall this dormant, diploid has 2 ½” blooms that are round with full petals and just the right shade of pale yellow that they seem to glow in the moonlight.


Daylily Little Witching Hour

By Salter 1988

She is the cutest of the cute. Truly a miniature at only a foot tall, with blooms that are less than 2″; the flowers are rose with a burgundy eye, green throat and a thin gold ruffled edge. This mid-season rebloomer is a semi evergreen diploid.
