Daylily Velvet Thunder

By Benz – 1994

This variety has deep red velvety blossoms with a white wire edge that extends part way up the petals. The flowers shine with diamond dusting and are lightly ruffled with a light fragrance as a bonus. The plant is both nocturnal and extended blooming due to its thick heavy substance and the bright green throat also helps it show up in the moonlight. The plant has 28 inch scapes with 5 inch flowers. It is a mid-season blooming, dormant tetraploid.

Daylily Ruffled Apricot

By Baker – 1972

daylily-ruffled-apricot1This fragrant, golden apricot beauty is the same color all the way down into the throat which is a little unusual. The accents are subtle; a lavender pink mid-rib that is really interesting and I love the diamond dusting. She really grabs your attention with her wide, round, ruffled blooms that are 7 inches across and held on 28 inch scapes. An early mid-season, dormant, tetraploid this daylily has nice heavy substance which is why the bloom is extended.  Sometimes the flowers even look okay the next day. She looks really nice with a lighter peach daylily.  I have her with Ming Snow. This daylily has won many awards, most notably the 1982 Stout Silver Medal award.

Daylily Lilting Lavender

By Childs – 1973

This lavender daylily has a striking unusual form that curls and twists. The curls on this one are quite graceful rather than being crazy like some unusual forms. They tend to curl back just at the tip of the petals and the lemon yellow throat helps to get it noticed. The 8 inch flowers are held high on 30 inch scapes and have a light fragrance. A dormant diploid this plant blooms mid-season and then re-blooms.

Daylily Bridgeton Bishop

By Apps – 1997

Bridgeton Bishop is violet, fading to a lavender halo above a bright yellow throat. There is also a ruffled yellow picotee edge. I love this plant because of its late to very late bloom. He starts when the others are finishing. This is a dormant tetraploid that has 5 ½ inch blooms atop 28 inch scapes. The scapes generally have 3 to 4 branches with around 25 buds so this guy preforms really well once he gets going.

Daylily Inwood

By Stamile – 2000

This lovely dormant tetraploid sports 6 ½ inch flowers with a light fragrance on 25 inch scapes. The showy cream colored blooms have a violet plum eye and picottee above green throat.  When we say cream we want to clarify that this color is really hard to describe. There are actually pink, yellow and tan tones involved and blended in. There is also a white mid-rib that cuts through the dark eye. Inwood blooms early to mid-season and then re-blooms. The broad round petals have heavy substance and the picotee is ruffled. Heavy bloom makes this plant a winner.

Daylily Jan’s Twister

By Joiner – 1991

Jan’s Twister is an unusual form daylily that will really have your garden visitors stopping to say “Wow, what’s that!” She has huge peach flowers with a large green throat, that are 11 ½ inches on top of 28 inch scapes.  She could maybe be called a spider but the petals are wider at the base and they curl fold and twist in crazy directions so that no two flowers are really alike. She is an evergreen diploid that blooms early to mid-season with good re-bloom for such a large flower. Jan preforms well here in Wisconsin. This daylily won the AHS award of merit in 1997, the 2000 Lambert/Webster Award for the best Unusual Form daylily and the Lenington All American Award in 2003.  The Lenington award is for outstanding performance in diverse climates.

Daylily Jean

By McDade-Schreiner – 1943

daylily-jean1I love this historic daylily.  It has coloration similar to the classic “Frans Halls” with red/orange petals alternating with gold petals. It was actually breed more than 10 years before it’s more widely known look alike. There is a creamy gold mid-rib on the red petals of this dormant diploid. This is where the similarities end however. This plant is prized for its height at 38 inches tall, and because it is very late.  The petals are also longer, enough that it can be categorized as an unusual form. The plant won the AHS award of merit in 1951.

Daylily Freedom Ring

By Wild – 1969 or DeGroot – 2002

This beauty is a dormant diploid that sports 6 ½ inch blooms atop 30 inch scapes.  The coral pink blooms are softly blended with cream.  There is some confusion with this plant because there is also a Platinum Palette Freedom Ring.  If you look at the photos given by the American Hemerocallis Society they look similar, but many of the photos for both cultivars are pictured by other growers as a much more coral flower without the cream colored lower petals.  The difference should be that Platinum Palette has a slightly larger flower and is also fragrant. The actual plant that I am selling is as pictured, and though it was sold to me as “Freedom Ring”.  I believe it is probably “Platinum Palette Freedom Ring”.  I will check for fragrance with the next bloom and amend this description if necessary. Confusion aside, this is a gorgeous bloom that performs well here in the far north.
