2001 Introduction

Aileen Castlebury, PINE BRANCH DAYLILY GARDEN

*CASTLE VIOLET SPLENDOR

(R. 2001) 26" EMRe sev 6" (95-113T-VE) This graceful daylily has sought my attention each time I have walked into my hybridizing field from the first day it bloomed a few years ago. I believe the special charm is derived from its distinctive color, a deep violet with a pale watermark and cream edge. One alluring feature is the deep green heart surrounded by a small chartreuse throat. A good rebloomer and parent, the 4-way branching on this unique daylily gives an average of 20 buds per scape and will be a very pleasing addition to anyone's garden. $20.
