The fabulous new hemerocallis, Jersey Earlybird™ 'Cardinal', is coming your way in 2010, right in time for spring planting and is guaranteed to rock the gardening world! 'Cardinal' was bred by world-renown daylily hybridizer, Dr, Darrel Apps -- famous for his popular ‘Happy Returns'. This new tweet-heart is first in a new series, and starts to bloom early on in the season, within a week of Stella D'Oro, and continues to re-bloom for nearly 100 days through zone 6, and 85 days in Zone 5! Wow!
And if that's not all, it's a hardy, easy-care, sun-loving perennial that's rust, pest, and drought resistant, making it a perfect choice for busy gardeners (like me) looking for a plant that's low maintenance repeat bloomer!
'Cardinal' has impressive 4” blooms that are fire-engine red with a yellow to green throat and 21” stems that boast greater height and stature than other early blooming daylilies. This beauty is a must-have for mass-plantings, borders or showing-off in containers.
Daylilies have long been looked upon as the "workhorse" in the garden, but now you can add stunning good looks that show-off sooner and continue to bloom long after others have stopped!
