Daylily Lucky’s Gold

Unregistered Variety

This variety originally came from Jung’s Garden Center. It is(of course) gold; even the throat and stamens are gold. It is a medium sized plant (about 24 inches) with about a 6” bloom. I think it is a dormant, tetraploid and it is a good bloomer and a fast grower.

Daylily Judge Roy Bean

By Reinke – 1996

If you love spiders this one should be in your garden; at 39 inches (99 cm) tall, with a bloom size of 9 inches (23 cm) and a spider ratio of 5.20:1, it really has a form much like its parent Kindly Light. It is a mid to late season bloomer, a dormant, diploid and is fragrant!  The difference is the color.  Described as; soft persimmon gold self with creamy ribbing and a large light greenish gold throat.  I had to google Persimmon. It is described as an orangey red, so this description is absolutely correct as the petals almost look like gold underneath the “persimmon” is showing through giving it a streaked effect.

Daylily Growing in Grace

By Korth-P.-Korth-L. – 2007

This lovely lily is cream with a blue violet eye that fades gradually to a lighter shade before meeting the chartreuse throat. Registered at 22 inches(56 cm) with a bloom that is 5 inches(13 cm), but for us she is not that big, allowing her to comfortably hang out at the front of the border. A mid season blooming, evergreen, tetraploid with 8 buds on 1 branch.

Daylily Fujita Scale

Daylily Fujita Scale

By Bremer – 2004

This really unusual daylily is registered as being a black red to brown blend with a dark maroon eye above a green throat, but I think it has purple hints too. It is one that really looks different depending on the light and is difficult to catch on film. It is 26 inches (66 cm) tall and the bloom is 5.25 inches (13 cm). It blooms mid season and is a semi-evergreen, tetraploid with 16 buds on 3 branches. It doesn’t spot like some dark ones will.

Daylily Fire Fountain

By Bremer – 2011

Wow, this plant is truly huge,  At 60 inches tall (152 cm) with 8.5 inch blooms (22 cm) it is really impressive. It is brilliant red above a large star shaped yellow throat. Stamens that are also bright red and a light ruffle set it off. A super hardy dormant, tetraploid that blooms mid season also keeps going and going well into fall with a bud count of 23 on 5 nicely branched branches.  Fertile both ways; this means lots of fun for those that have the space for giant seedlings.
