Bought this daylily from Sheila Martin "Busybeme Historic Daylilies" in Washburn, Illinois on an online auction. it is a Classic Heirlom Historic that gets about 40 inches tall. Extremely old variety circa 1942: Bred by Russel. It's fans are extremely healthy and the color of the vegetative stalks a bit paler than some other historic species leaves such as H. fulva or Dark star. I will post a picture next summer when it blooms and keep this page updated as to the actual precise color of the blooms. mike.

I bought this plant at a Daylily Society sale 3 years ago, labeled as "Black Prince", and after 3 years (in a pot) it is not remotely as tall as the registration information indicates it should be. (To be honest, I would not want it to be that tall anyway!) The form is somewhat spider-like, which is also fine with me. I hope what I have isn't mis-labeled. I bought it for the color, which has been satisfactory. It's going in the ground this spring, so we'll see...
