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 kindly light. A mid-season bloomer it keeps going into the late season and being a dormant diploid it performs well in northern gardens. I have it with “Firestorm” and “Ferris Wheel” and it contrasts beautifully.

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 Ferris Wheel

By Childs – 1959

Daylily Ferris Wheel

Daylily Ferris Wheel

An oldie, but a goodie; Ferris Wheel will really pop in the back of your border. The scapes are very tall at 40” and the huge 6” flowers are bright red with a large gold throat. They are considered spiders with a ratio of 5:30:1 but the petals are a little wider than some spiders showing even more of that gorgeous red. This dormant diploid blooms mid-season but extends into the later season as well and, bonus, it is fragrant.

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.
