This is an old daylily intro, but it is every bit as beautiful as anything hybridized today. When I saw pictures of Wild One in other people's daylily gardens, I knew I had to get it for my own garden. I am so glad I did. The flowers are glorious.

This can be a beautiful plant, but it seems too big and sloppy to me. Maybe this is because it needs to be moved into more sun. If you don't deadhead, it looks really messy.
