This Daylily was blooming about two weeks ago making it the last flower in the Daylily collection for the year. It’s large and colorful flowers were kind of a last hurrah from that part of the garden. ‘Condilla’ is a Trophytaker Daylily, which makes it special. There are several attributes that a Daylily must have in order to be considered a Trophytaker. The plant must flower twice as long as a normal daylily giving it a minimum bloom cycle of 42 days. It also must be hardy in USDA Zone 5 (many are hardy in Zone 3 and 4) and it must have superior long lasting foliage. You can see that the requirements are setting you up for success in the garden and I will always select a Trophytaker over a ‘regular’ Daylily.
‘Condilla’ has big flowers (4.5 inches across) that are borne on a sturdy 20 inch scape. It is considered one of the best Double Daylily introductions ever. It was introduced in 1977.
