I am not a big fan of pink daylilies, but this darned SACRED DRUMMER was so gorgeous and bloomed so beautifully for so long, and rebloomed, that it won me over. It is a very vigorous, disease resistant plant. The scapes are strongly upright. They are heavily budded, and yet the flowers open well, not usually crowding each other. The flowers are 6" across and sturdy. They attracted many, many favorable comments. The eyezone is violet near-blue, etched red violet, and is really striking.

It was sent to me from Cleveland Ohio, where its owner used it heavily in her hybridizing. Hardy both north and south. What are you waiting for, go buy one! ;-)
