Common Name: Daylily
This is the perfect daylily to plant in large groups to create a beautiful swathe of red color in the landscape. It has some of the best foliage of any red daylily variety, creating big, strong, vigorous plants with well-branched and heavily budded scapes. The flowers are clear fire engine red with a yellow throat and pie crust ruffled tepals. The color is very sunfast for a red daylily.
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)

- Rebloomer, producing a second set of flowers.
- Dormant foliage.
- Tetraploid with 44 chromosomes, twice as many as Diploids. Tetraploids tend to be bigger, stronger plants.
