Lurch is one of my favorites of the daylilies currently in my garden. I was hesitant about it at first because I am not a huge fan of UF daylilies, but the petals and sepals are wide and it doesn't seem much different from a standard daylily. The blooms are massive and the color is vibrant. The plants are hearty and multiply well.
