One of my favorite reds that I used to grow. 'Red Volunteer' is a beautiful red. It's a good grower and a joy to grow. I loved that the blooms were velvety! I remember that it it didn't fade any in the full sun, that it kept its beautiful red in the evening. I never had any problems with it when I grew it.

I have this daylily and it does indeed look like red velvet. The blooms are huge. It's a lovely daylily.

Even though I started with a double fan of Red Volunteer in 2008, I have given a lot of it away over the years and still have a good sized clump. While it is considered red, some blooms appear to be a very dark raspberry red. On very hot days, it does not look as vibrant, but it still retains a lot of color.
