Daylily Primal Scream

By Hanson – 1994

Daylily Primal Scream

Daylily Primal Scream

Primal Scream does just that to your senses when you see it.  The 8” tangerine/orange blooms have a ruffled edge. Depending on the weather, sometimes they open wide and perfect and sometimes they curve back and bend and twist into an unusual form. The plant is large at 34” and it is a dormant tetraploid with huge fans.  It starts blooming mid-season and has a large bud count for one so large, so it keeps cranking out the color, lasting into the very late season. It has won the Stout Silver Medal, the Lambert/Webster Award and the President’s Cup Award in 2013.  If you thought you didn’t like orange daylilies try this one; it will really stand out in your garden.

Daylily Katherine Harris

By Reinke – 1999

Daylily Katherine Harris

Daylily Katherine Harris

Katherine Harris is a tall beauty at 34”; an unusual form spider type it also has quite large flowers at 7”.  She is a mid-season bloomer that is a semi-evergreen diploid.  Branching and bud count are good and there is a bonus…fragrance. The tangerine gold blend with some streaking is eye-catching but never screams.  The mid ribs and throat are also gold blending to chartreuse deep in the center. The orange stamens seem extra-long to me and are tipped in black.

Daylily Jersey Spider

Daylily Jersey Spider

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).

Desert Princess is a miniature daylily growing to only 12 to 15 inches with 2 to 3 inch flowers.  It is a mid-season dormant diploid that blooms profusely.  The color is unusual and difficult to pick up with the camera.  It’s kind of a peachy-bronze-orange with a burgundy eye zone and a green throat; so cute.

Daylily Bright Sunset

By Rudolph – 1978

This large dormant tetraploid will really stand out in the garden. A bright blend of sunset colors; orange, red and yellow, on a 6” flower, held atop 36” scapes, will grab attention. The sunny yellow throat spreads to orange, and then red at the tips of the petals, with yellow mid ribs. The plant has huge fans and very sturdy scapes as well as heavy substance in the blooms, so it really stands up to our Wisconsin weather. A nice fragrance is a bonus. It starts blooming mid-season and then is listed as an extended bloomer, but in my garden it has been one of the latest as well.
