Gardeners' Notes:

This is a spectacular early bloomer in my upstate NY garden. I planted it next to H. 'Frans Hals' because its orange color is remeniscent of the color of the historic Dutch House of Orange (William and Mary) and because Frans Hals is a renowned Dutch painter. The image was taken right after a summer shower (a no-no) but I don't see that it damaged the flower badly. Its scapes contain from 10-15 flowers so that this daylily really becomes a 'fourthnight lily'.
