Aptly named, it produces 5-5½", russet red-orange (some describe it as chestnut) blossoms with a deep burgundy eye and gold throat atop strong, well-branched and budded scapes. The broad, rounded, ruffled petals open wide to reveal the perfect flower form. It’s even fragrant! A highly attractive daylily not to be missed!
Dormant tetraploid. Extended bloom.
Daylilies can survive many harsh conditions that other plants cannot including: polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, near pavement that is salted in winter, and under Black Walnut trees (not affected by juglone).
