'Magic of Oz' is a truely wonderful light pink spider with true emerald green throat like the Emerald City of Oz. All of the Herrington Oz daylily introductions are neat but this one is the one I personally own and is therefore my favorite and it is truely magical. I got it as an extra from Mr. Selman of Blue Ridge daylilies in Alexander NC. I couldn't ask for a heathier more unique and beautiful daylily plant.

Magic of Oz is a 37" tall spider with a 7" bloom. It blooms midseason and is reported to be fertile. It is a diploid. Magic of Oz has consistent, beautiful form and a very large green throat. It gets curlier and the petal edges wave as the day goes on which only adds to it's appeal.
