'Jade Star' Moldovan 1978. 47'' scapes up to 5'' blooms. EM RE Diploid. One of my favorite talls. We got this from a friend in the mountains. I currently have it listed as a noid until i can grow a labeled one from a vendor just to make sure before I add some killer pics here of it. It is one of the longest blooming daylilies I have and also reblooms in the fall even though it was not registered as a rebloomer, nor did moldovan register the height for it. It is Awesome. Again, one of my favorites and a must have for those who love extremely lovely dark reds, purples and talls.
