So many people in the "daylily world" seemed to want to veer as far from orange as possible (because of the "ditch lily" color, no doubt)... yet I really loved the color of bright orange in my garden, it was so cheerful! With the right form and performance, indeed... orange really can be beautiful!!!

This plant is a performer to beat the band... incredibly vibrant blooms for months, lots of 'em, and divine plant habit to boot! The plant's pod parent was somewhat similar, and sold to me as VENETIAN VOYAGER nearly a decade ago... obviously wrong. Knowing that the ID was incorrect, I refrained from using it as a parent... but it was a great performer, so I eventually did! So glad too, because I'd have never come up with this here beauty!

The name of this plant was chosen by the club I have had the honor of being President of, the Foothills Daylily Society.

Fantastic breeder of hot oranges, such as VITAMIN C (2011), and QUEEN OF CAN DO (2010) well patterns like MR. SKEFFINGTON, 2013
