This is a lovely daylily with lovely coloring, nice texture, heavy substance. The blooms are quite large. I purchased this from the hybridizer, Elizabeth Shooter of Marietta Gardens, GA, and it has already bloomed within two months of my purchase! The description of the colors above is not quite accurate. It is described by Ms. Shooter as, "This medium-lavender beauty has intense dots of grape on the edges of the petals ... A purple-blue washed eye, chartreuse green throat, cream midribs, grape veining and intense ruffling." This is a very accurate description (see my photo).
