A must have red! Gorgeous color that refuses to fade or wither.Really nice, tall foliage w/thick scapes tall enough to stand well over.HUGE perfectly formed 7" flowers.When purchasing, I visited a Daylily farm that grows hundreds of varieties, but this red is so stunning and prolific, it stood out to me and seemed far superior to all the other reds in the garden.It did extremely well in mine and draws the most compliments of all the daylilies I own.

New to my garden last year and all I can say is WOW .... grew large and began spreading quickly, the foliage clump is big for daylilies, produced an abundance of flowers on tall scapes the first year that were a brilliant red which even the hot Texas summer sun couldn't fade.

WHERE DID THE RED GO? This is a beautiful daylily...the red is bright and deep and velvety! okay, WAS beautiful. The strangest thing happened. As I have been impatiently awaiting the burst of red in my two gardens that offset the other colors and attract the hummingbirds, I was astonished to come home after a weekend away to find YELLOW daylillies bursting. They are gorgeous, but now one of my gardens has an over abundance of yellow. Can someone tell me how this happened? I know I planted Red Volunteer in May 2006...they were stunning last summer. Where did all the pretty red flowers go?
