Green Tarantula Daylily



Daylily
Hemerocallis 'Green Tarantula'
(hem-er-oh-KAL-iss)


This flower is a bit of a novelty item in the Daylily Border. It grows fairly enormous and doesn’t really flower that heartily. The color is also a little novel as it is bright pretty much a lime green and yellow mix. The flowers are huge, up to 8 inches wide and often display uniquely shaped and crinkled petals. I am not sure but this variety may go into ‘spider’ type division.



Since it’s Sunday again here are a couple of random Daylilies from the horse farm. The thing I like most about the colors of these types of Daylilies is if the light is right it kind of has a nice pink/yellow glow to the whole area. These are going to have to be divided this year.
