This spider daylily has been on the chopping block in my garden for years due to poor performance and some of the ugliest blooms one can imagine, but I moved it two years ago and it has performed better. The scapes are only around 2 feet tall, so the 10" blooms would look better on a taller scape. It has a very nice green throat and it is a parent to 45 other cultivars, so it must have some redeeming qualities that hybridizers are looking for.
