I can see how Tree Turtles received its funny name as the scape is rather tall. Still, the idea of a turtle up in a tree is quite funny to me.

Added Tree Turtles to my late-blooming daylily bed as I was always looking for blooms to extend the bloom season. It is a lovely flower, fuller in shape than most of my Woodhenge intros. Not an extra late bloomer, but blooms late enough to extend the season.
