Golden Daylily with a Raspberry Red Picotee

The red at this daylily's eye is mirrored on the ruffled picoteed margins.
Jazz up your garden with this exciting new Hemerocallis! The blooms are phenomenal, with a golden-orange color, a raspberry red halo, and delicately ruffled edges that boast a sharp red picotee on just the top three petals. The look is so well-composed, it is hard to believe nature made it!

The sophisticated blooms arise on incredibly vigorous plants that go totally dormant in winter, making them successful in northern gardens where semi-evergreen daylilies often struggle with rot. Feature 'Jazz King' in your sunny border, foundation, meadow garden, or along a driveway this season, and watch how it outperforms nearly every other plant in the vicinity!

The colorful, thick-petaled blooms are excellent in the vase, adding an exciting splash of orange and raspberry color that will last for several weeks. And these cutflower-quality blooms are also a boon in the landscape, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds to sip at their nectar all summer long.

'Jazz King' is a tetraploid, meaning it has twice the chromosomes of traditional (diploid) daylilies. This is significant for several reasons. First, it gives the plant greater vigor, resulting in larger, brighter, more substantial blooms that repeat in late summer after a heavy early season flush. Second, it increases the growth potential of the plant, helping it stand up to adversity and send out new flowering stems quicker than older varieties. Third, it takes off more quickly in spring and then goes totally dormant in winter, making maintenance a breeze!

'Jazz King' reaches up to 30 inches tall and 24 inches wide with very little help. All it needs is watering the first season or two to get its root system established. Like all tetraploid daylilies, it withstands cold, heat, humidity, and drought without turning a leaf. Pests and diseases even tend to leave it alone. All it asks is good soil drainage and plenty of sunshine! Zones 3 to 9.
