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 off 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).

Daylily Gold Spider

By Ellison – 1956

Daylily firestorm and Gold Spider

Daylily firestorm and Gold Spider

This sunny golden yellow daylily is a standout in your garden and defiantly won’t be confused with a Stella. It is very tall at 38” and the flowers are 8” across…wow. It is a spider, but the petals are a little wider than many other spiders. A mid-season bloomer it keeps going into the late season and being a dormant diploid, it performs well in northern gardens. It contrasts beautifully with reds and oranges.

Daylily Firestorm

By Krekler – 1979

Daylily Firestorm

Daylily Firestorm

This really spidery, unusual form variety is huge at 8” and fairly tall at 31”.
A fabulous orange influenced brick red that has an attention grabbing bright yellow eye that spreads in to the halo zone so that the entire center (about 4” is that color).  The Petals sometimes spread out wide as in this picture curling back a bit but other blooms are twisted and pinched in interesting ways. An early mid-season re-bloomer this dormant diploid can also have a crispate edge.

Daylily Circus Wheel

An oldie, but a goodie; Circus Wheel will really pop in the back of your border. The scapes are tall at 34” and the 6” flowers are bright red with a large gold throat and a darker halo.  This dormant diploid blooms mid-season but extends into the later season as well.

Daylily Christmas Ribbon

By Stamile – 1991

The large robust plant is the present and the giant 8 to 9” bright Christmas red flowers are the bow. It is classified as UF (unusual form) because the top petals are spatulate and the lower petals are spider like, thus making the flower look star like. The early to mid-season blooming flowers have a bright yellow throat that blends out to the diamond dusted petals, kind of sparkling in the sun. At up to 36”, this dormant tetraploid stands up to summer weather.

Parentage: (VELVET WIDOW X Tetra OPEN HEARTH).
