I watch for my Prairie Wildfire to bloom every year, which it's doing right now. Here in my partly shady beds the color is the deepest red, not burgundy, that appears to be red velvet. Unlike some of my other daylilies PW may have several blooms on a single stalk at once.

I have heard that it was hybridized in Canada and the name is a reference to the Canadian prairie but I can't find anything to substantiate that.

One of my favorite daylilies!
