‘kwanso’ lily

20 Jun

This variety shares many of the characteristics of other day lilies (see ‘day lilies’ posted 6/8/12) and belongs to the same family (hemerocallis) but the flowers are a bit more intricate, with 3 layers of petals, and each flower lasts for several days instead of just one. A single plant can produce 12 or more stems, with multiple buds on each stem, so the bloom time for kwanso is a somewhat extended versus standard day lilies. The bright orange color makes them visible from far away, but you really need to see them up close to appreciate the details.
