This is the first time this year this daylily has bloomed. It is Bama Bound. This is one of the fragrant variety of daylily. It has broad petals of deep royal red which can curve back so tightly the bloom assumes a round shape - very refined and elegant. It has a narrow, sunny yellow band and an apple green throaat. Midribs are yellow at the throat, turning to purple towards the edges. Our first flowers opened are not so curved. Usually the 2nd blooms are better shapped. I've read that this rich colored bloom is sunfast, plus they occur in unusually generous numbers so they keep opening over an unusually long period of 6 weeks in midsummer! I look forward to many pretty blooms.
