Daylily Bela Lugosi

The dusky purple petals of ‘Bela Lugosi’ arise from a lime-green throat whose color bleeds into a greenish gold center. It seems to suit this Daylily’s namesake, the Hungarian actor best known for his role as Count Dracula. 

Thanks to a vigorous habit, good bud count on well-branched stalks and a dark flower color that lasts well in sun, this tetraploid, mid-season bloomer has garnered awards from the American Hemerocallis Society. The slightly ruffled flowers measure about 6 inches across.

Semi-evergreen foliage never has any problems in my WI garden.
