Not only is Dominic perhaps my favorite daylily, it's also one of my favorite flowers, period. Its home is a place of prominence right at the bottom of the front porch steps. The whole family loves to check it out as we come and go.

This daylily has such a great deep, dark red color that is absolutely gorgeous, and the velvety look/texture is wonderful, too. It makes a really pretty plant. The foliage looks really attractive when it multiplies into a clump. On the less than positive side, it does seem to be highly susceptible to aphids. I had them crawling all over it one year, but it hasn't affected the plant's performance in the least.
