'Jupiter Light House' Warrel 2002 28'' EM Dor Dip. 5'' Saturated black flowers with a glowing gold throat which is encirled by radiating red lines and a tiny green heart, which at times both lighten, leaving a black eyezone. The only other daylily I know of and personally grow that is this black is Fleichal Black which was released arond the same time but is not yet registered. Jupiter Light House has much shorter scapes and it would be wonderful to cross with a very tall dark or purple to breed for taller true black daylilies or to just enjoy it for what it is, one of the darkest daylilies in existence!
