Hemerocallis 'Double Gold'

14th June 2007

It isn't double, it isn't gold, and I suspect it isn't 'Double Gold'!
About 30 years ago I bought a number of varieties from a nurseryman who had clearly been thrown into a green rushy panic-trance by boxes and boxes of new plants. As I asked about each successive cultivar (with all the terrifying innocence of youth) I watched the tremors slowly engulf his body. Hands twitched, plants bounced in and out of boxes and in the end I am not entirely surprised that one or two (or so!) of the plants do not match up to expectations.
I think it is probably 'Ester Walker', which I also got from the same place at the same time.
