'Sunset' is an amazingly tall beautiful pinkish-orange historic spider daylily. it is unique in that it has a very small bloom to be considered a spider or spider variant which usually has to be 6 inches or more in length, yet it has the spidery form and shape to its small bloom. My son recieved this daylily from his friend Shiela in Illinois who specializes in pre-1960s historics through one of her online auctions; and this fan we have from her, that is now a large clump, apparently came out of Perry's original batch!

SUNSET (Perry, 1931) almost went extinct, but fortunately was saved. I got my start in 1997, and it has done wonderful for me ever since. This plant is a Dormant, but grows very well in Zone 8b. A little extra room should be given between SUNSET and other Daylily cultivars because SUNSET is mildly stoloniferous. This trait has been reported in climates from Michigan to Florida.
