Hemerocallis 'Frans Hals'

Hemerocallis 'Frans Hals'

Common name daylily
Family hemerocallidaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers orange/yellow (July)
Size 24"
Light sun-part shade

One of the daylilies we acquired early on in our gardening experience, and it has never let us down. It is fairly vigorous, so divisions now live in several places around our garden, in both full-sun and part-shade areas; they do well in either exposure. The flowers in rich shades of reddish orange and butter yellow indeed recall some of the jollier paintings of the Dutch master for which the cultivar was named. They are among the latest daylilies to bloom in our garden, not starting until the second half of July.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
