Double Peach Daylily


Double Daylily
Hemerocallis 'Peach Magnolia'
(hem-er-oh-KAL-iss)

There were so many beautiful Daylilies this season that it was almost a little overwhelming. Of all the cultivars I saw this Double flowered peach colored one had to be in the top fifteen. Its color is one that we are constantly looking for to compliment customer’s taste in colors. It really was stunningly beautiful and the flowers were huge.

‘Peach Magnolia’ was hybridized by Joiner Gardens of Savannah, Georgia in 1986. Take a look at their website they have brought so many beautiful Daylilies to the market. They have been breeding Daylilies since 1962. This peach colored one is a rebloomer and it proved it this year with a good second flush. Among the awards this Daylily has won are the Ida Munson Award in 2002 for the best double flowered and the desirable Award of Merit in 1999.

There seems to be something wrong with the feed for this blog. I turned it back on to full feed to see if that helps.
