I had to work hard to go back through the parentage of this outstanding cultivar. The pod parent out of Harold Steen brought a unique rose color with a big gold edge while the pollen parent brought rich purple color and white teeth. The result is a rich wine colored flower and an edge that is wavy with tight ruffles in a gold/green color. While the petal color and edge make this a unique flower, the hardiness and scape make this a special daylily. Fertile both ways, we collected a good number of pods this year even though it is a late bloomer for us. Very limited, this is an exciting flower for us.
