All-American Daylilies 2003 Winners

Frankly Scarlet

4 inch Sunfast Scarlet Red Blooms
Blooms at 18-30 inches
14-27 inch, Lush, Dark Green Foliage
30-185 Bloom Days per year
Heat and Drought Tolerant

Frankly Scarlet is a winner in the Landscape Catergory and represents a breakthrough in red daylily breeding. While most red daylily blooms lose their luster as the sun beats down on them, these scarlet blooms shine in the heat. Muted in the morning, the velvety, scarlet, 4 inch blooms build colour intensity throughout the afternoon and are still vibrant beyond 6:00 in the evening. Nothing sets off bright red like dark green: dense, 14-25 inch tall foliage makes an excellent landscape statement and remains a lush dark green throughout the summer. Rebloom adds value to this brilliant gem. Hardy USDA Zones 4-10.

Plum Perfect

Blooms at 11-28 inches in height
25-175 Bloom Days per year
Small Purple Bloom with Darker Eye
Semi Evergreen Foliage Habit
Thrives in light shade

This All-American winner in the Landscape Category offers umbels of pure plum blooms that are borne on well-branched scapes. This 3-1/2 inch flower features an indigo purple eyezone set off by a glowing gold throat, purple veining, white mid-ribs and ruffled edges. Clear colour and good bloom substance, coupled with a striking symmetry of foliage and scapes, set this cultivar apart. Frequent re-bloom is another reward for growing this rapid-multiplier. In addition, Plum Perfect thrives and blooms in light shade. Purity of colour, vigorous growth, multiple bloom periods and wide adaptability make this a perennial winner. Hardy USDA Zones 5-10.
