Curt Hanson's Crintonic Garden Catalog said:BELA LUGOSI
I bought this daylily when it was introduced. Today, 17 years later - it remains the purple that I compare all the others to. Holds up well in sun. The year I had rust, it was only lightly affected. I have many daylilies that are newer than Bela, but it remains in my top 5 favorites.
This is one of those plants that I saw a huge difference between the one I bought from the hybridizer and the "big box store" tissue culture plants. I bought one from a couple stores and the flowers were not as intense, did not hold up to sun as well, and branching and bud count was inferior. I composted the ones from the big box stores.
