Twist Again (Huben 03)

Twist Again (Huben 03) 28 E Re 5, YellowGreen Self, Dor Dip
(Cool Spice * Spring Frolic)

The longest-blooming daylily in my garden. Four years running it has bloomed for 11 weeks on three sets of scapes. The color is a very cool yellow-green that fades in the sun to a remarkable cream and green giving the impression of a cream flower with a green bullseye. There is no other northern rebloomer on the market with this color. It has an excellent budcount of 20 (unusually high for a rebloomer.) The heavily ruffled petals twist differently in every flower, providing lots of motion in this unusual form. This one sells in August and September when people see the rebloom.
