Daylily Jolly Red Giant
P. Stamile 1999
(Star of India x Long Stocking)
Description: Jolly Red Giant introduced by P. Stamile in 1999. 8" x 2 ¼" x 1 ½ inch blooms on 68 inch scapes. 6 way branching. 56 buds. Unusual Form - pinched and twisted crispate. "I dislike writing in superlatives such as the most ruffled, the heaviest substance, etc. since it presumes the writer knows the entire world of daylilies. In growing daylilies for 20+ years including the species Altissima and the Challenger hybrids, I can say that I have never seen a daylily as tall as JOLLY RED GIANT. JOLLY RED GIANT towers over mere 5’ tall Altissima and Challenger hybrids and at 5’8" can be used in place of a small shrub or tree. This is truly a fun flower for those who want bragging rights for the "tallest". Being evergreen it may not grow as tall in the North but here in the South the first scapes bloom at 68" and rebloom just shy of 6’. Very strong well branched erect scapes." Pod sterile but pollen fertile. Very slight fragrance.

The tallest one we sell! An H. altissima hybrid from A.B. Stout, the father of daylily breeding. It has tea-yellow flowers with a cinnamon halo. A very prolific bloomer, through September here. Limited
another one...of course which is the most beautiful is totally taste!
janet, that flower that is pink...you described it as tea yellow? what does that mean? the altissima hybrid is the one i am talking about. and what is it's name? and what's an altissima? and a challenger?
The name of the pink one in question is Magenta Princess...you can find it at the last link I provided. Sorry I didn't label it with the name...I am not sure either about the tea yellow thing...when it's name is Magenta..sounds pink to me..LOL but it is pretty for sure! Have a great day!
I understand that Jack Temple has a new spider or uf that the flower is 16" across.I believe he named it ALDERGATE.
I did a search and could not find it listed on Tinkers or the AHS registration.I think Spunky[Fred Manning] of Lillian AL is selling for Tom.Does anyone have this one?
I have ordered some from him for 3 years in a row now, and I always get some beauties.
I dug up all my "Mascara Snake" one's this year and moved them to a new garden area. Lined them all up along a split rail fence. I divided them up, so it they may not perform as well next year, but it should be beautiful when they do and worth the wait.
Wilt Chamberlain is supposed to get up to seven feet. Mine has been over 6' but never 7'. I cannot find a registration for it. This picture was taken from top down, sorry for the blur, I was reaching over it and looking through the LCD. Oddly enough it was blooming yesterday too.
