Flowers are maroon purple with a darker purple eye zone and green throat.The first time I saw this daylily, it cast a spell on me. It was unlike anything I had ever seen in my garden before. There are doubles, and then there are DOUBLES. This flower twists and turns, like a shape-shifting magician changing its appearance to never quite appear the same way twice. Its pollen parent Emerald Starburst stamped the signature startling green throat on this daylily, creating a one-of-a-kind unique form and color combination that really stands out in the garden....$100 SF.
