Daylily Tall Blonde and Handsome

By Herr-D. – 2008

The name suits her; at 42 inches (107 cm) tall, she is also handsome with a bloom that is 5.25 inches (13 cm) and is a gorgeous blonde color with a yellow ruffled edge above a yellow to green throat. A dormant, tetraploid that blooms early and reblooms (more often with a longer season), but 23 buds on 5 branches she does have a long season. Also a strong plant that won’t tip over.

This sturdy, tall (32 inch) dormant, tetraploid is a good bloomer in the mid/late season. The 7 inch flowers are registered as orange but they are more of a golden orange with a star shaped rusty red/orange halo.

Daylily Royalty Surprise

By Klehm 2006

Royalty Surprise is a dormant tetraploid that blooms in the mid to late season.  It does continue all the way to frost for me.  The plant is 36 inches tall with 6 inch lightly ruffled blooms.  The rich royal red flowers are edged with a wide cream border that sets it apart from the other reds, and it has a green throat.

Daylily Matthew Martin

By Dougherty 1992

Matthew Martin is described as brown over a gold throat.  It has ruffled edges on a 5.5 inch flower.  The plant is a dormant, tetraploid that is an early middle-season bloomer, that also has extended bloom.  I have to say neither the description nor the pictures can show the beauty of this flower.  I really think it is my favorite.  It is a really rich color that can look different depending on the light.  It shows hints of red, gold, copper and purple, and the darker band in the eyezone really makes the throat glow in the dark.  The frosting on the cake is the copper diamond dusting that makes it shimmer.

Daylily Lucky’s Gold

Unregistered Variety

This variety originally came from Jung’s Garden Center. It is(of course) gold; even the throat and stamens are gold. It is a medium sized plant (about 24 inches) with about a 6” bloom. I think it is a dormant, tetraploid and it is a good bloomer and a fast grower.

Daylily Growing in Grace

By Korth-P.-Korth-L. – 2007

This lovely lily is cream with a blue violet eye that fades gradually to a lighter shade before meeting the chartreuse throat. Registered at 22 inches(56 cm) with a bloom that is 5 inches(13 cm), but for us she is not that big, allowing her to comfortably hang out at the front of the border. A mid season blooming, evergreen, tetraploid with 8 buds on 1 branch.

Daylily Fujita Scale

Daylily Fujita Scale

By Bremer – 2004

This really unusual daylily is registered as being a black red to brown blend with a dark maroon eye above a green throat, but I think it has purple hints too. It is one that really looks different depending on the light and is difficult to catch on film. It is 26 inches (66 cm) tall and the bloom is 5.25 inches (13 cm). It blooms mid season and is a semi-evergreen, tetraploid with 16 buds on 3 branches. It doesn’t spot like some dark ones will.
