MOONLIGHT ORCHID [Talbott 1986] is a 6.5" spiderish daylily of unusual colors on a 28" scape. It is a lavender and near white bitone, with green throat and ruffled petals. I had one some years ago, but planted it in too much shade and lost it to rot. I bought another because I'd gone and fallen in love with the flower. This time it is in great dirt in full sun, and is doing great, bloomed on tall scape. Didn't repeat, but in its first year planted, it's forgiven.
