Spiders are flowers with long narrow petals. Unusual and lovely, they create whimsical focal points to a garden design and Jersey Spider is one of the classics. It is very tall at 46” and the flowers really grab attention at the back of the border because they are gold/tangerine in color and 8” across…wow. A dormant diploid it starts mid-season but then extends into the late season. The green throat sets off the package of this historic daylily. Petal length to width is 4 1/2.0:1) and the form is sometimes wide open and sometimes crispate (pinched, twisted or quilted).
