Fancy Daylily

Hemerocallis 'Barry Matthie Seedling #12'

This Daylily is not an official cultivar just a beautiful seedling I saw out on Long Island. As I remember the day it was about 100 degrees out and I was the only one looking and snapping photos of the Daylily and Dahlia gardens. The flowers still looked fresh even under the conditions. This Daylily is like most of Mr. Matthie’s selections, fancy and a bit breathtaking. The color shading and ruffles combined to make it stand out from the crowd of other Daylilies trying to get my camera’s attention.

Well we finally got some rain yesterday and last night. It was the perfect type of rain. Hard but not fast enough to run off so the ground is soaked and it really feels like spring out there now.
