Blooms 100 Days a Year!

A Darrel Apps introduction, so the quality speaks for itself.
Plant Patent 16,515. Cultivar name: 'Endless Heart'

Expect up to 4 seasons of bloom each year from this magnificent red daylily, one of breeder Darrel Apps's Very finest. Part of the Jersey Earlybird™ series, Earlybird Cardinal™ delights with large watermelon-red blooms and evergreen foliage. Don't miss it for the perennial border, meadow garden, and containers.

The flowers measure up to 4 inches wide, and arise on very floriferous plants. Earlybird Cardinal™ sets 6 or more fans per plant, instead of the usual 2 to 3, so you get twice the blooms and then some. The first flush is in late spring, repeating steadily into early autumn. That's an amazing show for any perennial!

These blooms are lovely, saturated wtih light red color and starred with a chartreuse throat. The edges of each petal are pie-crusted, creating a stylish look that is repeated by the many dozen as the season progresses.

Earlybird Cardinal™ reaches about 21 inches high, a butterfly and hummingbird magnet in the sunny garden. Like all daylilies, it is left alone by most pests, highly disease-resistant, and tolerant of adversity from dry soil to heat and humidity. Easy to grow, easier to fall in love with, it's a must-have! This diploid keeps its foliage through winter in most areas, making it a good choice for the foundation and other high-visibility spots. Zones 4-9.

If you want to see photos of the daylilies I purchased from you around 1986, the Robert Griesbach "Song Bird" series, plus "Cookie Monster," go to my Facebook page, photo album "Non-railroad" photos, and you'll see them, including "Cookie Monster," with a teeny frog resting inside it's bloom. These were purchased when I lived in Milford, MI and in 2006, I retired and moved to Flushing, MI. They were transplanted and went bonkers! Guess they love the clay soil!
