By Flory – 1955
This historic daylily was named for the old Dutch painter Frans Halls whose 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.
