Daylily Velvet Thunder

By Benz – 1994

This variety has deep red velvety blossoms with a white wire edge that extends part way up the petals. The flowers shine with diamond dusting and are lightly ruffled with a light fragrance as a bonus. The plant is both nocturnal and extended blooming due to its thick heavy substance and the bright green throat also helps it show up in the moonlight. The plant has 28 inch scapes with 5 inch flowers. It is a mid-season blooming, dormant tetraploid.

Daylily Ruffled Apricot

By Baker – 1972

daylily-ruffled-apricot1This fragrant, golden apricot beauty is the same color all the way down into the throat which is a little unusual. The accents are subtle; a lavender pink mid-rib that is really interesting and I love the diamond dusting. She really grabs your attention with her wide, round, ruffled blooms that are 7 inches across and held on 28 inch scapes. An early mid-season, dormant, tetraploid this daylily has nice heavy substance which is why the bloom is extended.  Sometimes the flowers even look okay the next day. She looks really nice with a lighter peach daylily.  I have her with Ming Snow. This daylily has won many awards, most notably the 1982 Stout Silver Medal award.

Daylily Bridgeton Bishop

By Apps – 1997

Bridgeton Bishop is violet, fading to a lavender halo above a bright yellow throat. There is also a ruffled yellow picotee edge. I love this plant because of its late to very late bloom. He starts when the others are finishing. This is a dormant tetraploid that has 5 ½ inch blooms atop 28 inch scapes. The scapes generally have 3 to 4 branches with around 25 buds so this guy preforms really well once he gets going.

Daylily Inwood

By Stamile – 2000

This lovely dormant tetraploid sports 6 ½ inch flowers with a light fragrance on 25 inch scapes. The showy cream colored blooms have a violet plum eye and picottee above green throat.  When we say cream we want to clarify that this color is really hard to describe. There are actually pink, yellow and tan tones involved and blended in. There is also a white mid-rib that cuts through the dark eye. Inwood blooms early to mid-season and then re-blooms. The broad round petals have heavy substance and the picotee is ruffled. Heavy bloom makes this plant a winner.

Daylily Bama Bound

By Webster 1986

Daylily Bama Bound1This rich red beauty has a bright yellow throat changing to green deep down and the stamens are also bright yellow. It has a nice ruffled edge, a velvety texture that shows purple hews in some light and very heavy substance. The 5″ slightly fragrant blooms start mid-season. A semi-evergreen tetraploid that adds a wow factor.
