I received this in a trade two years ago. Last year the blooms were a bright coral almost orange. Now this year in the same spot, same dirt the blooms are like this. Very interesting. Does anyone know why this happens or have a clue as to a name.
Is this the first bloom on the plant this year. Sometimes the first blooms do not have the intensity of later blooms. If the buds have had a lot rain or direct watering just before opening this will also dilute the color or cause spoting. Not sure what it is but it looks like it has great bud count.
yogaman: Yes, they are the first blooms and the buds did get alot of rain. Thanks, for the info. It will be interesting to watch. It is a great bloomer, I have 2 patches of the same daylily and both are blooming the same.
The blooming season is almost over here in Houston. I had some new plants that bloomed for the first time and they did not look right till the end of their first blooming cycle. They are repeaters so the next scapes they produce will be more true, I hope. Let us know how yours turn out.
