This is my favorite daylily. It has huge blooms and will bloom from the end of April all the way through August. The color changes as the flower opens. The first day the flower is open it is a very dark purple with yellow center. Each day the flower is open, the color becomes a brighter purple and at times looks like a deep red. The yellow center basically stays the same. Each flower is slightly different some have more yellow than others, and some have a little white in with the yellow.
The size is amazing. The flowers are usually bigger than most orientals. It has thick strong petals and takes minimum care to thrive. They multiply over the years so they may need to be thinned if the area over run with roots. I have not had many problems with pest attacking the blooms.
I can not wait to see these guys again. The pictures taken here are of a flower from last spring that had been open for a few days, so the color had brightened.
