A beautiful flower on short plant. Pale orange petals, some trimmed in dark purple w/purple interior and golden throat. A real eye catcher.

Don't give up on Sabine Bauer. When first planted, it takes a couple of years to establish and bloom in Zone 5 or lower. Give it time and it will repay with wonderful blooms and increasing slowly but steadily. Plant it in the front of a border because it is so short and the scapes are very short. The flowers are dramatic and large and you want everyone to see them. It also does well in partial shade/sun.

Bloomed when it came home from the greenhouse three years ago and has not bloomed for two years. The plant is in full sun and is increasong to a clump. If no bloom this year out it goes.

Sabine blooms very early in zone 9 and blooms off and on. It is still blooming in July. Even very early blooms open well.

It is a stiking flower when in bloom but very slow to multiply here and low bud count.

The flower has a striking dark eye and edge. It is reblooming on a small plant set out this spring. We have had a record amount of rain so all the daylilies are blooming well this year.

Somewhat unique bloom. Eye is very large and the flower recurves and is very ruffled. Cream with purple eye and edge.
