Last year I got some Kwanso. I loved its color and how tall it was. Then I learned it's a child of ditch lilies and has those hard core roots. I had to dig it up and move it.

Does anyone know about this one?

So is Kwanso - and it's tall enough to look me in the eye, too!
But I don't want to accidentally buy another one that has ditchlily roots!

Yes, Critter, I have a noid that was not preforming well. It has flowered and looks interesting so I dug it out and moved it to a moister position. It is still struggling. But today, a month later, I was walking past where it once was and I can now see three daylilies growing quite vigorously about 8 inches from where it was. Duh?

This does not happen in my garden. I wonder what it is? I am sure it is not a ditchlily and looks an early spider type. But do some older cultivars have the same spreading habit as ditchlilies? It might be a clue in trying to identify my noid.

Why does the data base show the color of Ditch Lily as just plain "Orange"? How about the yellow throat? Could it be a fulva spider cross? Are we in for an invasion of the Ditch Spiders?

well I think it is just a given that a daylily has a colored throat. I guess a few would have a throat the same color as the petals, but not many. I think the color on the database is referring to the petal color. I always thought though that the Kwansa had a band or eye of darker orange in it?

Well, for example look at Red Volunteer "clear candle red self with gold yellow throat".
This is 'Kwanso'


This is Ditch Lily

I don't grow HOLIDAY PARTY, but have seen it growing in many gardens in my region. It's a favorite around here--beautiful and very hardy, hybridized by the late Frank Kropf of Missouri. Definitely not a ditch lily relative!
