    A vividly colored and saturated glowing "hot" orange flower that grabs your eye. The fabulous color of this flower is unique!

    I grow House of Orange in a large, self-watering container and it has done very well for me. It is a gorgeous orange color that is very difficult for my camera to capture correctly. It is one of the few daylilies I have in containers that has bloomed as well as ones planted in the ground.
