Description:

Zing, POW!!! MAN... what SEARING color!!!

Try as I have been for years now, it's been hard for me to get any recognition for my work with the sheer garden power... of the color orange.

In 2011, I added a new "beast" category with "Eminent Domain"... and also "burnt" category, with "Vitamin C"! Indeed, the hottest dose of orange for me yet, this new plant has color that nearly catches the scapes on fire!!! On massively dormant plants that are quick to increase, comes absolutely towering scapes... don't plant near trees, it might catch them ablaze with such vibrant emissions! Hard to see in my clump shot, but the foliage has a "blue-green" cast for the entire year... something I've been working on in my many dormants for a while now, to add foliage interest to off-bloom season (think of what blue Hosta has done for folks, and imagine that in daylilies - how cool!). Sooo... maybe one day, I'll get enough plants out there that someone will finally be able to tell... I LOVE orange, and am here to tell ya, this vibrant color adds life to your garden!

Great parent... generating the new "My Offer Stands", and "Piece of the Action" (both Owen, '14).

Update 2016: "Vitamin C" has just won an AHS HM Award... WOO HOO!!! I guess folks DO appreciate a hot dose of Vitamin C (orange) in their landscape diet once in a while! ;-)
