Grape Starburst is a fabulous daylily here in northern Illinois. When the plant matures it blooms from its start time somewhere in end of June early July until frost. It's much prettier than the picture on his web site. A beautiful rich reddish purple, light violet purple water mark which appears to be blue to the eye and a green throat that holds all day. Looks as good at the end of a hot, humid day as it did first thing in the morning. Picture was taken at the end of a 95 degree day with gulf coast humidity. Spectacular!
