Hemerocallis 'Ariadne'

17th July 2006

Raised by Mrs J.F.Emigholz in 1949. At the time it was probably appreciated for its size. It grows to about four feet tall and makes good clumps, although the foliage can get a bit straggly. It doesn't produce as many flower buds on the scape as a modern cultivar would, but the individual blooms are large and scented. The spidery tepals are almost fashionable at the moment.
And as if that weren't enough problems to load on the shoulders of one elderly daylily, I rather like it (and my taste is notoriously erratic).
