This red beauty is one of the 1st daylilies I ever bought at a local daylily nursery in south Louisiana. That was 20 years ago, so I've given or traded many through the years as it is a prolific multiplier for me and comes true from seeds. The stocky scapes and hefty red flower with a yellow throat make it a favorite of mine. Here they bloom mid April through May, then rest to rebloom again in July. The only negative is that they fade some in full sun, so I've moved them to places that get part sun, where they are pretty all day. They are a variety that makes a nice cut flower to bring scapes indoors in a vase to bloom for a few days.

The only thing I don't like about this plant is that the scapes are too short, so the flowers nestle in the foliage instead of being held above it.

Lost during a move. Had a clump dug at Lakeview Daylily Farm in Garner, NC. Later found a daylily mixed in with others in a big pot, which seems to be SO.
