Common Name: Daylily
We’ve been hungry for more daylilies from hybridizer Chris Meyer, and this year we are pleased to introduce ‘Hungry Eyes’. 5″ mauve rose flowers have an orange tint and are beautifully contrasted with its wine red eye and matching picotee edge. We’ve observed consistent rebloom in our field, excellent for a daylily with this large of flowers.
Daylilies can survive many harsh conditions that other plants cannot including: polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, near pavement that is salted in winter, and under Black Walnut trees (not affected by juglone).
Attracts bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies. Rabbit resistant.
Characteristics (Compared to Other Daylilies)
- Late Midseason Bloomer, blooming in late July.
- Rebloomer, producing a second set of flowers.
- Fragrant flowers.
- Semi-Evergreen foliage.
- Tetraploid with 44 chromosomes, twice as many as Diploids. Tetraploids tend to be bigger, stronger plants.
