One of the most unique daylilies I grow. Great for hybridizing. Like a chameleon, it will give the hybridizer many different looks with whatever you cross it with. Parent to 'Waves of Joy.' A somewhat tender evergreen, it survived the arctic temps in Vermont this past winter planted on a hillside in the mountains, and it gave me 2 new fans this spring. Absolutely love it! Lovey dubby
