We’re delighted to introduce two Unusual Form daylilies: ‘Mango Punch’ and ‘Molly’s Favorite’. Bred and grown in the great outdoors, both have proven to be exceptionally vigorous in our USDA hardiness zone 4.
Some of you have been waiting for these to be available. Thanks for your patience!
29" height, mid-late season, 7.5" flower, 5-way branching, 27 buds, Crispate-Unusual Form, semi-evergreen, tetraploid. (seedling X seedling) $125/double fan; $75/single fan.
If you like hot colors and lots of bloom, this one’s for you!
The clear orange of ‘Mango Punch’ is a beacon in the garden. Pinched petals and curled sepals place it in the Crispate-Unusual Form category. Large green-to-gold throat gives it a wide-open look. On an established clump, we see blooms shortly after mid-season, but bloom has been 10–14 days early in 2015. Scapes have 5-way branching with about 27 buds per scape, producing a long bloom season—plus it reblooms. A cold-hardy, vigorous grower with deep green foliage, it makes a wonderful clump.
Parents include ‘Passion’s Promise’, ‘Kissed Off’, and ‘Love and Dazzle’. Easy pods and pollen.
40" height, mid-season, 7" flower, 5-way branching, 24 buds, Crispate-Spatulate Unusual Form with quilled sepals, semi-evergreen, tetraploid. (Swallow Tail Kite X Riddle Me This) $125/double fan; $75/single fan.
A little quirky!
Clear purple with a large blue-purple, pencil-outlined eye. Pinched and twisted petals plus quilled sepals add fun to the look. The large green-to yellow-to-near-white throat sets off the flower in a garden setting. The touches of white seem to clarify the purple tones. Sturdy well-branched scapes stand tall, even when loaded with large buds.
The cross (Swallow Tail Kite X Riddle Me This) produced interesting offspring, but this was the most outstanding of all the seedlings for clear color and excellent plant habit. Easy pods and pollen.
25" height, mid-season, 6" flower, 4-way branching, 20 buds, semi-evergreen, tetraploid, (seedling X Harlow). $100/double fan.
This soft lavender rose-white blend has white ruffled edges on wide petals with soft white midribs, an orchid halo, recurved sepals, and a green-to-yellow throat.
Smaller in stature, we almost lost it among the towering (Swallow Tail Kite X Riddle Me This) seedlings! It really belongs near the front of the garden to appreciate its delicate look. ‘Laura Eva’ increases more slowly than some, but—despite its dainty appearance—it opens well and is reliably cold-hardy.
‘Laura Eva’ was named in honor of Kathy's mother. Before she passed away, Kathy's mom asked to have a lavender daylily named for her. We think she would love this soft, feminine flower. Most divisions will be going to siblings this year with a limited supply available for sale.

We ship at least a double-fan size plant unless otherwise noted in our listing;, we include a bonus of extra fans or a gift plant for orders of at least $35; and we guarantee that our plants are true to name.
If we ship you a double fan, please do not divide the first year, as some daylilies perform better over their first winter as a double fan. Our daylilies are quite vigorous here, so if you choose to order a single fan, we expect it to perform just fine for its first winter. Please contact us if you have questions.
