STARLET (Stamile,G.) Dip. D201-57 (Little Whipper Snapper x Cute

Double 100%. If you have never seen a patch of Grace’s popcorn
doubles it is really hard to describe the incredible bloom density that
these tiny daylilies have. There is nothing else in the world of
daylilies that even comes close. The closest thing in horticulture is
an azalea or some of the sheared or plant growth regulated
chrysanthemums where the intensity of bloom all but blocks out any sign

Imagine a scape only 15” high with 6 branches and 40
buds all confined to about a 4”-5” diameter. Now cover that scape with
two or three 2” peach pink blooms a day and, of course, you would have
adjacent scapes in the clump doing the same thing and I think you will
get the idea. It is a sea of color, all the same height, literally
covering the slender green arching foliage. It is truly an amazing
thing to see.
If you do not grow one of Grace’s mini doubles I

STARLET. Fertile both ways. Very recurrent (3 – 4 sets of scapes in
