Hybridizer notes:
WILD WOOKIE (Stamile, P.) TET (Daniel Webster x Web Browser) 31 MRe. early morning opener. Evr. 9 bloom, 13 wingspan. Spider ratio 4.0:1. Spider variant. 6-way branching. 30-35 buds.
A sibling to HANG SIX, WILD WOOKIE is a wild daylily. This daylily opens for two days with the first day being a trumpet and the second day being exceptionally flat, twisting and curled. Fortunately WILD WOOKIE does not water spot and day two flowers are always fresh and clean. A large chartreuse yellow throat dominates the blood red flowers of WILD WOOKIE. Despite a 13 wingspan, WILD WOOKIE is a very easy parent both ways.
