*RIO FIESTA (Pierce, G.)
TET P806-C (Orange Grove x (Hedgehog x Fringy)) 33” EV E re. fr. 6.25” flower 5-way branching
35 buds. If you like bright colorful
orange daylilies you will love ‘RIO FIESTA’! This big round faced blossom is a picture of
clarity with so much going on. There is
a large orange cherry eye above a crisp citron green throat. Thanks to the influence of ‘FRINGY’, the
petals are picoteed, with a strong orange cherry border edged in golden
ruffles. The flower face is large and
opens to perfection in the early season.
A strong and healthy grower, the foliage even after the fourth set of
reblooms is thick and vigorous with no signs of being tired in August! ‘RIO FIESTA’
is a complete package and one that I would strongly recommend with no
peers. Fertile both ways.
