Orchid lavender with black purple eyezone above green throat.
An intense color combination. Plants are fast growers and do best if divided every three years.

Orchid Candy is the very first daylily I ever bought, and the one that sparked my addiction. Not knowing anything about daylilies, I bought it as a bag of roots at a big-box store. I didn't know that these were tissue culture plants until it began to grow; even as a weak plant it was still beautiful, and I was thrilled when it bloomed.
I've moved on to healthy, divided daylilies purchased from reputable growers now, but I loved this one so much that I replaced it with a normal clump from one of my favorite recommended sellers. I look forward to many years of big, beautiful blooms.
