My plant is a very bright red (brighter than the photos here) and the ruffled edges are really bright and intensely colored. The petals are streaked with yellow and white in the center, like brush strokes - each flower is unique. It blooms early, before the other daylilies and then reblooms. Definitely a keeper.

While this daylily may not be considered 'cutting edge'
it is a plant I am glad to care for.

At a farmer's market last summer, this lily sold out
faster than any of the others I had for sale that
weekend.

It is a strong daylily with big blooms that look
amazing in the sunlight. Makes an absolutely
stunning cut for a vase.
