By Marsh-Klehm – 1978

James Marsh developed the “Chicago” series of tetraploids and the “Prairie” series of diploids. Daylily ‘James Marsh’ has a large, sun-fast red flower with a contrasting yellow throat. It also has a subtle change in color near the throat, turning fuchsia that really makes this round perfectly formed flower pop. Held atop 30” scapes, the 5 to 6” flower has heavy substance and rarely gets water spots. A dormant tetraploid, it starts blooming earlier than most and continues through the main season. Another bonus is the slight fragrance.
