Hemerocallis 'Badminton Riot'


Plant Type:


Hemerocallis 'Badminton Riot' (QGN.2.2020) - Quackin' Grass Nursery introduction, recently registered. Saturated light golden yellow trumpets atop stems that rise to 63 and as tall as 69 inches (as in 2022) begin the volley of shuttlecocks at the threshold of August in northeastern Connecticut. Bud count is from 24 to 32 depending upon branching which is between 4 and 7 - yes, up to 7 branches per scape. This tall boy offers a nonstop show running nearly as many as 7+ weeks. It is very lightly fragrant, barely, but does emit a light peppery sweet scent. I questioned the worth of this chance seedling but the bud count and longevity of bloom plus its tall stature coupled with late bloom pushed me to name it and make it available to you folks. Y'oughta net yourselves one... Get it: badminton net??? That deserves a paddle. Ooooo - just please stop...

Genus Overview: Hemerocallis

Common Name: Daylily

The well-known daylily. We have become increasingly taken with the late and very late bloomers. Those glorious daylily trumpets add such rich and contrasting texture to mops and strands of goldenrods, Joe-pye weeds and late season daisy flowers that occur in abundance at this time; they are splendid with the broad flattened domes of ironweeds, the spikes of Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘Firetail’ plus the seeds and berries that so opulently populate the landscape in the late season. We are offering a handful of mid-season bloomers. Of course, most of the breeding has centered about these and for this reason many of these cultivars are fancier. But we find there is elegance in the simpler flower form and gentler colors, often soft pastels, in the later selections. Most of the late bloomers but not all have originated with Olallie Daylily Gardens in South Newfane, VT. All cultivars are hardy in USDA zones 3 to 9 unless otherwise marked. All of the following are sent as bareroot divisions of our plants.
