Daylily, Daring Deception


Description: An excellent example of the Fancy Face Daylilies that have taken the Hemerocallis world by storm the last few years. The modern traits everyone is striving for are: large blooms that have delicious ruffling accented by a distinct band of color, which is matched in the broad eye centering the bloom; wide petals that reflex back cleanly to create a rounded form and present a broad surface of color; sturdy substance to the petals so they hold up well despite adverse circumstances; and the all-important high bud count for a big, long-lasting show in the garden. Daring Deception delivers on all counts, with the added bonus of a whole series of reblooming that enables you to enjoy these beauties for months!
