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.

Aster New England – Symphyotrichum novae-angliae

Symphyotrichum novae-angliae, commonly called New England aster, is a native perennial which is most often found in moist prairies in the eastern half of the US.  It is hardy to zone 4 and heat tolerant to zone 8, and although it is large and needs some space it is not invasive and does fine in the garden.  It grows to 3 to 6 feet and spreads to 2 to 4 feet.  Plant more than one for a real show.  The size depends on the moisture provided and the strain that you have.  Pinching back in July will keep it shorter and delay flowering.  Daisy type flowers with purple rays and yellow centers that are about an inch wide, appear in in abundance in late August and September.  The plant likes full sun and is loved by bees and butterflies. Cut back to the ground in fall to avoid seedlings. The genus name comes from the Greek symph, meaning coming together, and trich, meaning hair; in possible reference to the flower anthers.

Odds and Ends is a semi-evergreen tetraploid that is 32 inches tall and holds bouquets of 6 inch blooms starting in the early to mid-season.  The flowers are fragrant and are a lovely lavender with a violet eye above a chartreuse throat.  If I had to pick a tetraploid that is the best grower I’d have to say it is Odds and Ends.
