Nice mid-sized daylily that is very colorful. Medium bloom, creamy yellow w/red edging, red interior and yellow throat.

Hillbilly Heart is one of my best bloomers and has a long blooming season in Northern California.

The blooms really catch the eye!

Of the over 300 different cultivars of daylilies I have...this one is among my top three that I just love. First...I love the color combination, the heavy ruffles, and the size of the blooms. I also like the number of blooms it produces and the legnth of time it has been blooming. And lastly, I like the name.
