Hagrid, Daylily
*Hagrid

* 'Hagrid' -- (Spectacle of Wealth x Gary Colby) Sev. 7-8” fl. 30” sc. M 25-30 buds. When I look at this image, I realize that Hagrid looks like a beautiful lavender, but that is just the beginning. Unfortunately, the image can not capture the huge size of the flower, which gives it such impact in the garden.  These monster-size flowers make other gold edged lavenders look like miniatures.  The color varies between a dark lavender and light purple, accented by a deep green throat surrounded by a lighter watermark.  The gold edge is deeply ruffled, and the flowers are presented on tall, well branched scapes.  A great garden show-piece and an important breeder for size in the purple to lavender lines.
