This was blooming this afternoon when I came home....I think it might be NIGHT BEACON, or whatever I had purchased as NIGHT BEACON years ago...big box stores don't always get the names correct and the older daylilies are blooming over a month early this year.
The color is more burgandy than rose showing in the photo and the flower is 6" diameter.
Thus far the ones that have bloomed are HAPPY RETURNS, STELLA 'D ORO, ROCKET CITY and another Orange-Gold Unknown with 6 1/2" flower.
ACROSS THE GALAXY is budding up as are some others.
I'm REALLY anxious to see flowers on the newer daylilies I got this year!
