Embers of Vesuvius is one of my favorite daylilies! It is a very bright orange that is very visible from a distance. But what I love most about it are the various spots of red that are on the petals. I checked and last year pretty much every single bloom had them. That makes it a very unique flower in my garden.

It does have some negative traits. It takes forever for the flowers to open. As a hybridizer, if I want to use pollen from EOV I have to be very patient. The slow opening is not related to the weather or temperature. It is also not a vigorous increaser for me. It adds about a fan a year. But those are the only two flaws I can think of. Overall, this plant is well worth growing for its gorgeous bloom and reliable flowering.
