Late Blooming Varieties

The following images of late bloom season daylilies have been contributed by members of the Daylily E-Mail Robin for your enjoyment.

JOHNNY COME LATELY (Flory-Englerth) was the first really late-blooming variety I acquired. It makes a particularly attractive mature clump, with its wiry scapes arching outward over the dense stand of foliage. This dormant diploid is up to 30" tall with gold and rust bicolor flowers of about 4.5" diameter.

HOOSIER TWISTER (#671D03) (Shields seedling), diploid, Ht. 24", probably SE, Flwr. 6", petals 2.25 - 2.5"; sepals quilled, ca. 1.1" wide. Parentage = [(WIDE FANTASY X JOHNNY COME LATELY) X PINK PANOPLY].

Daylily seedling #671D03 bloomed July 16th, mid-late in the 1994 season,its first bloom season; and started blooming about the same time in 1995. We expect it to be a ML to La blooming daylily on average (time will tell!).
