BARBARA WATTS* (Kirchhoff-D., 2008) height 28". Bloom Size 6"., Bloom Season Early-Midseason, Reblooms: Yes. Bud Count: 20 buds. Branching: 3. Plant Habit: Evergreen. Fragrance: Yes. Double: 99.9%.
When we introduced this amazing double in 2009, (it sold out at $250.00) we referred to this unique Double as “David’s Lost Toothy Double”. During hottest weather, petals sprout teeth up to ½ inches long, tipped in pastel yellow gold. The color is quite variable. In the early, cool Kentucky spring, the color is a blend of cream-peach with a rose blush and a peach-yellow halo. In Florida and in Kentucky when the days turn hot, the colors become increasingly coral and orange. Its color and substance are sunfast. It is an Early Morning Opener. Some blooms display both petaloid and hose in hose form. Pollen is very powerful; pods moderately fertile. The sun and heat intensify the colors. Named for a great friend and tireless promoter of daylilies from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Recurrent scapes have 3 – 4 way branching. 99.9% Double. (Never a single, so far). For distinction, in 2009, there is no comparable daylily at any price! Awards: AM 2018, HM2015
