The flowers of Autumn Wood are gorgeous in color and form. This is a long bloomer and a fast increaser. This is an outstanding daylily for me in Zone 8, coastal SC.

This has a lovely bloom in shades of coral or apricot with gold highlighting and nice ruffling. The coloring is really stunning. Wow -- what a prolific bloomer! This plant consistently puts out many blooms at a time for me, and blooms for a very long period of time. The blooms are perfectly shaped every time -- no deformed looking flowers. I have over 100 types of daylilies, but this is definitely a favorite! I would consider this a medium-sized daylily. Grows very well in central Kentucky.
