If you like clear yellow and large spiders this one is for you,and with 20 buds per scape you get a lot of color for a long time.

Beautiful gorgeous big blooms. Wild appearance and 'Terry' and 'Daybloomer' photos here are true to color. My first year with this daylily and I have it in a pot on the back porch. I think this one would go great in a part of the garden with partial shade to really make it's color pop!

A beautiful specimen that grows about 32" with blooms that are 8-9" in size. Mostly yellow, with a handsome green throat. The plant is well-branched and has a long bloom season that last year stretched from mid July to early August. I highly recommend this daylily. We purchased this from the nice folks at Lynd's in Pataskala, Ohio.
