Daylily Jean

By McDade-Schreiner – 1943

daylily-jean1I love this historic daylily.  It has coloration is similar to the classic “Frans Halls” with red/orange petals alternating with gold petals. It was actually bred more than 10 years before it’s more widely known look alike. There is a creamy gold mid-rib on the red petals of this dormant diploid. This is where the similarities end however. This plant is prized for its height at 38 inches tall, and because it is very late.  The petals are also longer, enough that it can be categorized as an unusual form. The plant won the AHS award of merit in 1951.

Hosta Green Sparkler

By Zilis 2010

This small hosta (about 10 inches tall by 2 feet wide when mature) is a sport of Sparkler. It is like one of my favorites, Red October, in that it has red petioles. The difference is that the leaves are bright green, wavy and shiny instead of dark green and glaucous. The flowers are pale purple on 2 foot scapes.


Daylily Spin Dazzle

By Wilson 1983

Daylily Spindazzle (2)1A spider daylily that looks a little different each time it opens, because of the way it twists and curls. This semi-evergreen diploid holds 6 inch flowers on top of tall 3 foot scapes. The flower has a spider ratio of 4.4:1 and the color is difficult to explain starting from the center there is a wide yellow throat and the smaller petals are this same color. The large upper petals are slightly wider and gradually fade from apricot to orange to dark red.

A mid/late season bloomer this dormant tetraploid is 24” tall with 5” blooms. He has a ruby self with a gold throat. It’s not just any old red however.

This is a seedling of Vesuvian. It is not a registered name.

A robust plant with large 6″ perfectly shaped red flowers with heavy substance. The plant is long blooming and also one of the latest blooming in my garden. Fat fans produce sturdy, well branched scapes that are about 24″ tall.

Bud set is heavy and they always open without problems even in cold weather.

This show stopper is fire engine red with a chartreuse throat. A winner! Wish I knew who the pollen parent was.
