Hemerocallis 'Corky'

Hemerocallis x 'Corky'

This is one of the best Daylilies I have come across in a long time. It is a completely deciduous variety with very fine grassy foliage appearing after winter dormancy and forming quite a clump in a very short time. It is just starting to send up some pencil thick flowering stems which are tinged with purple and holding up to a dozen buds.The flowers are pendulous and have a stripe of reddish brown on the back of each golden yellow petal.I think it would need to be planted in a group of five for maximum impact or used to edge a pathway.
