A showy cultivar that has the vigor so typical of Doughertys. It seems a bit shorter here than 24 inches. Attracts attention in the later garden (not really late, though). It takes a very good picture, so, at least in my garden, is not quite so vivid as in many photos. Bud count probably about 8-10. Branching is not a strength.

I would agree with MANTIS about its vigor and bud count. It has consistently rebloomed for me over the past three years. It is usually 22 to 24 inches tall. I have mine in full sun all day, which probably helps in reaching its registered height. I will forgive the lack of branching and bud count because of the rebloom. It will throw a poly bloom once in a while.

An eye catcher in the garden. I draws your eye right to it. For that reason I love it. Not as tall as registered here. It did rebloom for me last year. Clumped up nicely its second year (2017).

I agree with everyone else here; it's not real tall but there is always a place on the outside of the garden for shorter DL's. And Indian Ripple, in spite of its shortness, is always noticed. It's a welcome splash of color later in the bloom season. I made a cross last summer: Autumn Wood X Indian Ripple. Hopefully in a couple years I'll be able to update this with that bloom pic from that cross. Crossing Fingers!

Sue I would love to see those seedlings.
Indian Ripple is eye candy for the late front row of the garden. Does well here. Never measured but I am sure it is less than twenty four inches. Reblooms at times. I get an occasional poly also.

Looks like I am the only one to not have this daylily survive in my garden over winter the year it was planted. I didn't try it again as my rule is they get one go here not to be replaced.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!
