Cardinal Summer (Murphy 2019) 6" M 34" Dormant Diploid Spider
Bright, deep brilliant red with velvety sheen. Chartreuse throat, partial length midribs are lighter in color. Sunfast to at least 90 or 95. Very few daylilies are this sunfast in this color range. Fertile and a good parent. 2 branches and 14 buds. Note the red buds! Spent blooms are red, so we seldom feel a need to deadhead this one. Out of (It Glows x Lava Stream). Freeze-resistant dormant blue green foliage.
I should have registered this as a rebloomer. 3 years in a row it has rebloomed, in September, when scapes are most welcome.
A rosy blend with silvery frosting in the morning, green throat, cream midribs, and curled petals. More burgundy in the hot afternoon. Very sunfast. Excellent 4 way branching with 26 buds. Long blooming. Fertile and a good parent. Out of (Ocean Depths x Amethyst Tears). Eye catching and unique!
2021 Rebloomed two years in a row.
I have 3 future intros from it.
Vanilla Ice Cream (Murphy 2019) 6" LRe 28" Dormant Diploid
Cream with a good green throat. Ruffled edges. Starts out cream, bleaches to near white on hot days. Very fertile and one of the best parents for white that I have used. Two instant re-blooms here under good conditions. It is out of (Running Late x Jims Evil Grin). Sunfast. 3 branches , 15 buds. Starts Late and blooms into September here. There are only a few plants here that bloom this late into the season.
2023- was still blooming on original scapes when frost ended the season.
