Hemerocallis fulva 'Kwanso'

Hemerocallis fulva 'Kwanso'

Common name daylily
Family hemerocallidaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers orange
Size 24"
Light sun-part shade

Vigorous double daylily whose flowers seems to change every time you look at them: they always orange, but sometimes the multi-toned characteristic comes out strongly, other times they appear to be more evenly mid-orange. Likewise, the shape goes from a strong nearly symmetrical double to much frillier forms.
This daylily does come with some warnings: it wants to wander, and can interject itself aggressively into clumps of less vigorous neighbors. Ours, planted in a border near the front door that gets baked in summer and doesn't receive much supplemental water, has been relatively well behaved.

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