Hemerocallis 'Wassaw Island'
A clump perennial with attractive, arched and evenly narrow leaves and dark orange flowers. During flowering, it grows up to 70 cm in height. It creates funnel-shaped flowers 14 cm in diameter with a bright red throat and yellow eyelet. They are comprised of 6 wide, extruded petals with curled edges. The flowers, set on the tops of long, bare stems growing above the leaves, develop in June and July and have a pleasant smell. The variety repeats flowering, which is a rare feature for daylilies.
The plant is easy to grow, tolerant as to soil type. Grows well in sunny and semi-shady locations, frost resistant (zone 4).
Plant recommended for growing in public green areas and home gardens, in flower beds, in groups or in compositions with other perennials.
