A tall daylily for me, but very lovely! Mine is getting ready to rebloom now in August. It has a gorgeous golden edging on sherbert orange tepals. Draws the eye to it and seems to glow! I love this one!

Hybridizer notes: COSMIC COURIER---(Crystal Singer x (Regency Summer x Seedling) 3 flowers. 27scapes. Semi-evergreen. Early midseason. Recurrent. A bright blending of yellow, cream, gold and creamy orange. This flower carries a heavy ruffled and bubbled edge around the petals. Form is very broad, full and flaired. Throat is small and yellow green. Substance is smooth and holds well. Extremely well branched scapes carry multiple blooms. This flower stands tall and makes a showy clump in the garden. Fertile, very easy to use and sets pods readily.
