By McDade-Schreiner – 1943

daylily-jean1I love this historic daylily.  It has coloration similar to the classic “Frans Halls” with red/orange petals alternating with gold petals. It was actually breed 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.
