Hemerocallis (Daylily) 'Paper Butterfly'
Over the past couple of years I have found myself collecting more and more daylilies.. This is one of my favorite.. It is also one that cost more than the others. The price... last year $14.99 per fan.. Needless to say I added one to my collection.
It bloomed this year and it was far to short. The stem only had 3 buds on it. But, when they opened up, boy was it beautiful. It was about 6 inches across and tall and had this dark maroon/violet eye with peach petals. I collected my gardening neighbors and showed off my prize. It lasted all of 4 days. One day it didn't bloom.
Hopefully over the next year the fan will continue to grow and I will get more stalks and more buds to salivate over.
