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 Variegated Kwanzo

By Stout 1945

Variegated Kwanzo is unregistered, although it is historic as it was developed from a sport by the father of modern daylilies.  It is a 3 foot tall mid to late bloomer with a three inch, hose-in-hose, double orange/red flowers.  It’s main attractions is the variegated leaves (striped with white or cream).  The plant is also unusual as it is a triploid (this means it has three sets of chromosomes where most have two or four).  This makes it sterile but don’t worry, this plant has the ability to spread by runners.  I would not recommend keeping it in your regular daylily beds.  It is not as aggressive as the green form which has become a “ditch lily” in some places, but, do remove any plants that revert to green as they will spread faster.  The variegation is different with every scapes, some are even pure white.  Keep the ones that are interesting and get rid of the rest in a way that they won’t spread into the wild.  We don’t ship this one early in spring because we want to make sure that each fan that we send has nice variegation.


Daylily Kyoto Protocol

By Reinermann 2010

This one is not often seen for sale.  I love the color; I’m going to call it “rusty Red” but it has hints of red, orange and gold.  It has a fuchsia eye zone over a gold throat and lighter colored midribs.  It is a semi-evergreen tetraploid that blooms midseason and is 24 inches tall.  The bloom size is listed as 6.5 inches but I think it is more like 5 inches for me.

Daylily Orange Flurry

By DeGroot 2000

Orange Flurry is a cute little plant, it is both miniature, with 2.5 inch flowers, and dwarf, at only 17 inches tall.  It is ruffled and kind of an apricot color with hints of gold, a prominent gold mid rib and a gold throat.  There is also a rusty eye band.  This cutie blooms early mid-season but also reblooms and has a fragrance.  The plant is listed as a single flower but often doubles or produces a poly for me.
