Valedictorian is a fantastic daylily. I am truly surprised that it is not more popular. Its color, described as a tangerine rose blend, is extremely pleasing to my eye. It is a great clump increaser and it gives a great display even from a distance. I posted a clump shot which consists of two plants. The front one had 22 scapes, a few of which had four-way branching with a bud count of seventeen. This is not bad for a hybrid introduced in 1976.
