Gardeners' Notes:

GREY WITCH by Reed 1999, is my Very Favorite Daylily of All time. It only has two way branching but it multiplies like a weed. it is the fastest multiplying daylily we own which is Awesome for us as we love it so much. Diurnal and having 15 plus buds which is not to shaby a bud count for a spider, its spider ratio is 4.22:1. I think what makes it so special is not just the unusual grey color with the darker eyezone pattern, but also it's lovely green throat. We recieved our plant from Blue Ridge Daylilies in NC on Bob's The Blooming Auction site under spider and unusual forms category, if anyone else wants one. We always hope to grow this Beautiful plant!
