A pretty red daylily. They are very recurved or they would easily be a 5" flower. The gold center is pretty against the multi-shaded red that ranges from cherry to raspberry. They bloomed all of May and into June here in south LA. zone 9.

My 'Carlotta' daylilies make proliferation plants. This July 2018 I cut four 6" plants off stems that still had flowers. I put them in water for 3 days, which makes them send out nice roots, then on day 4 I put them in potting soil. I've read they are actually clones of the plant they form on.
