blooms early to mid summer
Spring Hill Nursery:
Radiant colors of gold and dark red, large 5.5-inch size, broad petals that fold back to create the desirable rounded form, pie crust edging created by pronounced ruffles – Fooled Me is a real eye-catcher! It is also a strong performer in a wide range of climates, and is very vigorous so its foliage stays green and full. Then, there’s the sheer number of blooms it produces, the result of heavy budding and excellent branching on the scapes. Relatively new to the gardening world, Fooled Me has won an impressive number of awards, including the top honor for a Daylily, the Stout Silver Medal. 5.5-inch blooms on 24-inch stems in Early and Midseason. Stout Medal Recipient in 2005. Hemerocallis ‘Fooled Me’
