'Jean' 1943 McDade-Schriener 38" VLa Dor Diploid Unusual Form Cascade. This plant is listed as a Very Late bloomer however it has been growing wild for the last 50 years on the Louisiana Coastline, where it starts blooming around the first week of May about two weeks before the orange ditch lilies H. fulva start to bloom. It is often confused and 'Jean Watson' ends up mascarading under the label which was introduced in 1948 and is another Mcdade intro. The difference between the two I have been told is only in color. 'Jean' 1943 is redder in overtones as it is a orange-red and pale orange bicolor sepal daylily, and 'Jean Watson' 1948 is pale orange and pale yellow bicolor polychrome sepal daylily. They are Heirloom Classics! anyone I end up getting is good enough for me! and am hoping to get one this coming year!
