Baltimore Oriole Daylily
Hemerocallis 'Baltimore Oriole'
Daylilies with this deep of a color stand out a little above the Hemerocallis crowd. The petals are a rich red and have a good structure. The flowers can measure up to six inches across and have a deep yellow throat. We are going back to Manhattan today with a load of plants to complete the spring clean up. There are several Daylilies on board but none as striking as 'Baltimore Oriole'. The garden owner goes for lighter colors so we bought some pastel and more muted types.
Our foray into the big city last week was the first time we ever worked down there and not received a parking ticket even though parking in the neighborhood has been reduced by about half due to construction. Hopefully we can continue the magic this week.
