Mamabluestem's Hemerocallis 'Double River Wye' x 2 Blooming
not fragrant DOUBLE RIVER WYE (Kropf) 30", D., M., 4 1/2"
Pretty, pale yellow double daylily with green throat. Extended blooming.
looks almost like a double-flowering form of the old standard ‘Hyperion’ little smaller in stature than ‘Hyperion’, standing about 30" tall when its in bloom, with narrow almost grassy foliage. multiplies well
flowers “loose” double, or perhaps even semi-double. They don’t have that full, overblown, rose-like appearance that some of the doubles do, It has a charming, old-fashioned kind of appeal. It doesn’t re-bloom (or at least hasn’t), there are no eyezones or watermarks or piecrust edges, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a good garden plant. It presents exceptionally well, with the stems carrying the flowers well above the foliage (one of my biggest pet peeves with many of the modern hybrids is that they often have their flowers buried in the foliage).
