Martha Anne McWilliams

(Fire Down Below x Roses and Gold) (Velvet Throne). Sev. 6" fl. 31-34" sc. M 20 buds. Fertile both ways. Good rust resistance. I have been hybridizing red daylilies for many, many years. We have had some very important breaks along the way, particularly with color intensity and saturation. We also breed for large flower size and tall scapes to increase the impact of the flowers. Martha Anne McWilliams has brought all of these characteristics right to the front of the line. The flowers are a deeply saturated crimson to blood red accented by a green heart, and are presented on tall, majestic scapes. The petal edges are surrounded and accented by a white band. The flowers are always deeply ruffled, with large, looping ruffles, every curve of which are highlighted in white. Our daylily friend and enthusiast Anne McWilliams from Warner Robins, GA was so taken by its beauty she asked me to name it for her. A striking flower named for a lovely lady.
