This is is the largest flowering Daylily in my garden so far this year.
The flower is measuring 10 1/2 inches in diameter. It is also very prolific, producing many buds.
A good one for planting at a distance, as you just can't miss it!

I love the size and coloring of Scarlet Pimpernel and the fact that it polys on a fairly regular basis. I have not been able to set pods on it.
