ROYAL SPECKLES brings a fancier face to stippled daylilies. Most of the current stippled ones are tailored with not much ruffling or edging. ROYAL SPECKLES has a cream orchid base with darker lavender-purple eye and double-lavender purple and cream to gold edge. There is lavender-purple stippling throughout the flower with it being more concentrated in the edge and eye.
ROYAL SPECKLES has 3 to 4 way branching with 25 buds on average.
Fairly easy pod parent and easy pollen parent.
