About This Plant

There’s certainly nothing “cheesy” about this daylily, though the light yellow flower color may remind you of Monterrey Jack cheese.  A well-defined, raspberry red eye and lighter midribs really stand out on the glimmering diamond dusted flowers.  Their broad, rounded petals open wide and flat to 5 1/2" across, making them appear even larger.  Each exquisitely ruffled flower is of perfect form and they are displayed nicely on the candelabra-branched scapes. 

This daylily is a strong grower that blooms early in the daylily season, so it will be in bloom when you are shopping for summer color at the garden center.

Dormant tetraploid.
