Aunt Leona has become one of my favs in one season. Mine looks more like mattsmoms second picture and is sending up a rebloom before the first flush is done.

Hybridizer notes: Tet (Spanish Wedding Gown x Porto Fino) semi-evergreen. 6.5-7 flower, 4-way branching. 30 buds on a 28 scape.
AUNT LEONA is one of the most beautiful clear colored soft pastel coral flowers I have ever seen. This has been one of my favorite daylilies since the first morning it flowered. The flowers have a beautiful porcelain iridescence with very broad ruffled petals and complementing large blunt sepals. AUNT LEONA is producing beautiful very clean colored flowers in its progeny.
