Hybridizer notes: Tet, (Tet. Siloam Ralph Henry X seedling), semi evergreen. EMRe. emo.
FRONT PORCH SWING is a beautful, very round, ruffled 5" flower with heavey substance. The throat is an iridescent citrine green, which contrasts beautifully with the pastel, creamy coral sepals and petals. The heavy ruffling around the petal is a delicate creamy yellow. This plant produces a 28" branched scape with 35 to 36 buds. An imperative for the hybridizer wishing to increase the bud count, ruffling, and edges on their daylilies.
Fertile both ways.
