Daylily Lilting Lavender

By Childs – 1973

This lavender daylily has a striking unusual form that curls and twists. The curls on this one are quite graceful rather than being crazy like some unusual forms. They tend to curl back just at the tip of the petals and the lemon yellow throat helps to get it noticed. The 8 inch flowers are held high on 30 inch scapes and have a light fragrance. A dormant diploid this plant blooms mid-season and then re-blooms.

Daylily Jan’s Twister

By Joiner – 1991

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.

Daylily Spin Dazzle

By Wilson 1983

Daylily Spindazzle (2)1A spider daylily that looks a little different almost every time 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 that are strong enough to stand up without staking. 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.

Daylily Star Of Fantasy

By McRae – 1992

Daylily Star of Fantasy

Daylily Star of Fantasy

Hmmm…how to describe “Star of Fantasy”; it has a large yellow star in the center that is the throat. The star effect continues as bright white mid-ribs extend out into a triangle shaped plum eye-zone. Then the rose/violet spidery petals stretch out, again in a triangle shape as the top petals are much larger than the lower petals which have some lilac at the ends but are mostly reflections of the yellow cream throat. This dormant diploid is fairly tall at 30” and the 8 ½” fragrant spider flowers seem to hang right at nose height. Petal length to width is 4 1/2.0:1

Daylily Red Ribbons

By Lenington – 1964

Daylily Red Ribbons

Daylily Red Ribbons

These deep ruby red spiders do look like ribbons at 8” with a ratio of 4.7:1. They are super-tall.   Big long buds held on 40” stems.  Though they are an ever green diploid they do pretty well here in Wisconsin. The star like warm gold center really shines. The petals curl back nicely and sometimes the gold extends down the mid-rib or as a thin line along the edges.

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

By Grovatt – 1973

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 of 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).
