Daylily Seedling Borders on Merlot

This is the result of one of my first attempts at hybridizing. The seedling used as the pod parents was from a gift of my second group of seedlings from a friend LG.

The 5 inch flower is rose to lavender with a darker halo and some mottling and streaking that differs from flower to flower. The petals have a very heavy yellow pie crust ruffled edge while the sepals do not. The edge is the same color as the golden throat.

The plant is a 24 inch tall dormant tetraploid.

The plant is a dormant tetraploid and is a sturdy, well branched 30 inches tall.

Daylily Fooled Me

By Reilly-Hein, 1990

This sturdy dormant tetraploid is a fast grower and has beautiful foliage growing to about 2 feet tall. 

The flowers also have heavy substance and are abundant and held above the foliage but not too tall. This is why they are considered “extended bloom” which means the flowers last all night and into the next day. The 5.5 inch blooms are golden yellow with  a red picotee edge and eye zone and a green throat. Perfect form; round with a little pie crust edge, rounds out the package.

This award winning mid season bloomer is a dormant tetraploid.

The plant is 22 inches tall with lots of 3 inch blooms over a long period. The bud count is 40 on 5 branches. She starts early and is a dormant tetraploid which is unusual for one so small.

Daylily Bela Lugosi

By Hanson – 1995

Daylily Bela Lugosi

The dusky purple petals of ‘Bela Lugosi’ arise from a lime-green throat whose color bleeds into a greenish gold center. It seems to suit this Daylily’s namesake, the Hungarian actor best known for his role as Count Dracula. 

Thanks to a vigorous habit, good bud count on well-branched stalks and a dark flower color that lasts well in sun, this tetraploid, mid-season bloomer has garnered awards from the American Hemerocallis Society. The slightly ruffled flowers measure about 6 inches across.

Semi-evergreen foliage never has any problems in my WI garden.
