Barbara Mandrell*

In stock


(Kirchhoff 2009) Tet 30" EM, Re Ev 6.25". The self-color of this flower is candied-berry-red infused with layers of Christmas, Chinese and intense cardinal! A dollop of green punctuates the throat. The colors evoke Christmas and its namesake, beloved music legend, Barbara Mandrell, who was born on Christmas Day. A bright watermark halo contrasts the lacquered red self-color and a sparkling-gold filigree encircles the petals. Its color and substance are sunfast; the texture is smooth and silky. This daylily is a proven parent, producing bright, opulent red, rose and purple seedlings with fancy edges and great clarity. Barbara Mandrell provided the inspiration needed for Pat Bullard of Lifeworks Foundation to create the Nashville Music Garden, an oasis in downtown Nashville. Soon this American icon’s namesake will blaze, as has no red daylily before it. The recurrent scapes have four-way branching and 25 or more buds.
