This flower has one of my favorite colors among all daylilies--a unique, crystal clear bittersweet orange/coral color that can take your breath away.

This plant is an amazing performer in my garden. It multiplies well, stays in bloom for a LONG time and displays great branching.

It seems to set large pods jam-packed with huge vigorous plump seeds on almost every bloom, even on very hot summer days. I obtained over 200 seeds from my clump last year and it managed to multiply and is now blooming stronger than ever. I can't wait to see all of the seedlings next year!
