Daylily Ruby Stella

Unregistered Imposter

This miniature daylily was sold to me as Ruby Stella years ago at a auction.  A Google search told me that this name is often used for red miniatures when the identity is unknown.  In any case it looks and behaves much like Stella de Oro, except that it is Christmas Red.  It has the same size flowers, same early bloom, same rebloom, but I think it is a little taller.  It looks nice with Cherry Candy as the color is exactly the same as her eye.

Daylily Red Top

By Carpenter 1953

This historic daylily is tall at 36 inches, but stands up well in the wind and is a fast grower.  It sports masses of red 5 inch flowers that are red and have a very bright yellow mid rib and throat.  It is a dormant diploid but is larger than most diploids.

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 Liberator

By Wild 1981

Liberator is a little different shade of red than most of our red daylilies.  It is rosy, almost rusty red and it has an eyezone that I would describe as lipstick red and a lighter rose mid rib over a green throat.  It is 23 inches tall and is listed as a 7 inch flower but I believe it is more like 6 inches.  The plant is a dormant, diploid that blooms mid-season.

Daylily All American Chief

By Sellers 1994

This is the one, where visitors to the garden stop and say “Wow, what is that?”  The blooms are nine inches with a large bright yellow throat that spreads into a star when fully open.  At 32 inches tall this dormant tetraploid is sturdy and holds abundant blooms without bending.  Early, midseason rebloomer says it all, as he seems to bloom all summer.  It’s no wonder he is a Stout Medal winner and is still winning popularity contests today.

Daylily Siloam Show Girl

By Henry – 1981

Daylily Siloam Show Girl

This daylily is supposed to be 18 inches but is smaller for me, 15 inches with 4.25 inch blooms. Not a true miniature or dwarf but a smaller daylily that is comfortable joining the party at the front of the border.

A dormant diploid, it has fire engine red blooms with a deeper red eye zone over a green throat. Heavy substance means extended bloom and these cuties are round, recurved and ruffled to boot.

Daylily Charming Heart

By Wild; 1979

Daylily Charming Heart

A beauty, with tall 3-4 foot scapes, although you can get multiple scapes of different heights with good bud set.  It blooms early mid-season and is a dormant diploid. 

The scarlet flowers have a large chartreuse throat that blends outward to a narrow pinkish eye zone.  There are white rays on the mid ribs that extend about half way out on the petals, and also a white picotee edge that reaches half way out the petals.

Daylily Velvet Thunder

By Benz – 1994

This variety has deep red velvety blossoms with a white wire edge that extends part way up the petals. The flowers shine with diamond dusting and are lightly ruffled with a light fragrance as a bonus. The plant is both nocturnal and extended blooming due to its thick heavy substance and the bright green throat also helps it show up in the moonlight. The plant has 28 inch scapes with 5 inch flowers. It is a mid-season blooming, dormant tetraploid.
