I have a lot of daylilies, and this one gets more than its share of attention. The flowers are huge and the shape and color are beautiful. One of my favorites.

2007 was the first year that "Persian Market" bloomed for me. I had purchased it as a bare root, double fan from a daylily society sale in 2006. The first bloom opened on June 20th. I was not disappointed! The flowers are huge and very striking.
