This 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.
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.
