Plants/Bulbs are only available for specific ship dates. Please see shipping info below.
5.5", brilliant orange, heavily ruffled, recurved petals display a slightly darker red-orange halo. Golden yellow-orange throat and matching stamens. Flowers are held atop strong, straight, well-branched scapes. Lots of buds ensure many weeks of blooms. Blooms in midsummer. Nocturnal--tomorrow's blossoms open during the prior evening. Extended bloom--flowers last at least 16 hours each. A dramatic improvement over older orange daylilies, this large flowered selection sets the garden ablaze in color. Dormant foliage. Tetraploid. This is considered a premium daylily, which means that it has been selected as highly performing plant with exceptional bloom performance, substantive, vibrantly colored flowers, complete winter hardiness in northern zones, and a vigorous habit. 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).
