7” bloom, 48” tall
CELESTIAL SHOWERS x
opher It – Hunter 2019
This large, playful maroon bloom boasts a flat, expanded golden throat. The 48” scapes don’t flop, but are flexible enough to move a bit in the breeze, which catches the eye. It is a beacon in the late summer garden, when many daylilies are done for the season.
GOPHER IT has good substance, with the colors still holding at the end of the day. The petals and sepals can twist and pinch, or fan out. The 2-3 way branching falls a little short of my goals, but the form, color, and over-all garden value of the plant convinced me to introduce it. Not to mention that, in the opinion of my neighbor, who used to live in Minnesota, Gopher fans will love it! Fertile both ways, but pod is more difficult because of the long pistil.
