GWEN DENNY MEMORIAL* (Kirchhoff-D., 2019) Height: 36". Bloom time: Late Season. Bloom size: 6 ½" –7" Rebloom: Yes. Branches: 4. Bloom Habit: Extended. Foliage: Evergreen.
Just as the early reblooming cultivars' blooms begin to dwindle, clumps of Gwen Denny fire its stunning red and yellow beauty to the far edges of the garden. The broad, yellow-to- green- throat pattern on both petals and sepals adds distinction. The texture is satin, and the color and substance hold well in the heat. An early morning opener, the form is widespread and recurved. The late Gwen Denny, of Warner Robins, Georgia, loved gardening, especially daylilies and hostas. She loved folks at her church, as well as her many daylily friends in Middle Georgia and beyond. The scapes are strong and recurrent.
