( Murphy 2017) 54"L 7" Dormant Diploid Unusual Form Cascade
A large, pink with lavender highlights, cascade with light cream and green throat. Open early and late, on tall, well branched scapes that are stiff and upright. 3 branches and 18 buds initially, but bud builds when happy for up to 28 bud count. Fertile, pods are not easy. In bloom a very long time in the late and very late daylily garden. This year it started July 10, and is still in bloom on August 16.
This great plant is many colors. Overall, a reddish lavender bitone, it has a strongly yellow throat, and cream edge, that becomes much whiter in hot weather. Sunfast in all conditions here. 4 branches and 29 buds, and very fertile. I have some very nice seedlings out of this, in reds, lavenders, and purples, all with some color patterning of this type. In 2017, it bloomed from 6/22 until 8/1 on first scapes and is currently blooming on August 15th, with more scapes coming. If you live north of here, don’t expect rebloom, except rarely, but South of here, you should have reliable rebloom on scapes with 20-30 buds. It will bloom a long time north or south.
