Small-flowered, early blooming, and one of the oldest daylilies of all, this cheery little queen is lemon yellow lightly shaded with chestnut on back. It was bred from the wild lemon lily
and H. dumortierii
by George Yeld, the founding father of daylilies, and it blooms today – as it has for decades – in the restored garden of Mississippi author Eudora Welty. Yellower and taller than its sibling ‘Gold Dust’, 28-30”, dormant, zones 4a-8a(10aWC), from our Ann Arbor micro-farms. Last offered in spring 2015. We’re building up stock and plan to offer it again in the future. For an alert, sign up for our email newsletter.
