Daylily 'Midnight Magic'   

Bought this at the very first day of the Benton Farmers Market from the daylily group. Glenda and Jenna were there with me. Talked to Tom Talley from Shongaloo. Forgot to ask him if he was related. He invited me to come to his daylily farm — he has hundreds of daylilies, including some white ones.

Not sure how much I paid for it – probably around $12 – $15.

This planting is in the Front Foundation Border East garden .

    I don’t think this melted after the recent hard freezes. There is green growth and it doesn’t appear to be new.

    This bloomed out a few weeks ago and is blooming again now – not as many so far, and maybe not as large.
