This is the first year I had Brooklyn Twist in my garden. It didn't do real well due to the heat we had beginning the end of May. No rain and temps in the nineties and low hundreds until August. I fear it may have been lost. Keeping fingers crossed.

Brooklyn Twist is a new addition to my garden. I received it from Stilldew in September 2017. It is grown in a very large container with two other daylilies. It has settled in growing nicely and putting on a wonderful show with the other daylilies. It is a very nice vibrant shade of violet red with a hint of blue at times.
It starts out straight when opening and curls during the day.

This container combo is a WOW! Three big daylilies with complimentary colors and they bloom at the same time. The container adds to their height just making it even more impressive. The other two daylilies are a seedling (Roses in Snow x Shadow of Doubt) and Best Kept Secret.

May you experience many good things in life!
I prefer to walk in the light, I prefer a world where people want to be kind and bless each other, I prefer a God who loves and shares so much that he gave up his only Son for me. I prefer to choose the God of Abraham. Let there be peace and let it begin with me.
