Modern Daylilies are the product of many years of breeding work, resulting in freely blooming plants of the easiest garden culture. They form dense clumps of grassy foliage, with upright stems of trumpet flowers. This selection features large bright-red flowers with a yellow eye and stripe down each petal. Midseason with some repeat blooming. Diploid. Plants do not usually require dividing for several years, but are easily split apart in fall or early spring. Spent flower stems can be trimmed back after flowers are finished. Remove old foliage in late fall. Flowers are edible. One of the older Daylily selections that has become a classic. Nesmith, 1941.
