Libby Finch daylily     1949
Rarest & It’s Back!

Last offered in 2021. The “rich, lustrous, velvety black cherry color” of this old daylily (in the words of the 1949 Schreiner’s catalog) would be great no matter what, but it’s the creamy white line down the center of each petal that makes it so striking and unforgettable. You’ll find yourself drawn to it from across the garden – and looking forward to it every summer. 34-36”, mid-season, dormant, 2 fans, zones 4a-8a(10aWC), from our own micro-farm. Chart and care.

Mikado daylily     1929
It’s Back!
