Daylily October Ruby

By L. Grant 2004

36″ Ht. 5″ bloom – zone 3

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. Fan size tends to be small in Wisconsin, but even here, this one looks like it came from a southern garden. The plant is long blooming and also one of the latest blooming in my garden.

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 papa was.


Daylily Little Rusty


15″ ht. flowers 2.5″ – zone 3
Rusty orange with a gold throat.  This one can vary on the same plant.  Some are solid orange and some are slightly bicolored with gold hews on the lower petals.
This little beauty came in a group of seedlings that were billed as “Sisters of Stella”. It is not a registered variety. This daylily was part of the breeding program for the famous Stella De Oro that was not registered. This is a beautiful little mini that would be at home in any collection. It has many of the same attributes as its sister “Stella”. It is a non-stop bloomer, increases rapidly and is 100% reliable.
Early midseason, extended bloom, re-bloomer
dormant, diploid
