Hemerocallis Jersey Earlybird 'Cardinal' is the first in a new collection of early and repeat blooming daylilies from Centerton Nursery (http://www.centertonnursery.com/).
Wow. This beauty starts blooming in May 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!
Jersey Earlybird 'Cardinal' was bred by world-renown daylily hybridizer Dr. Darrel Apps, famous for his popular 'Happy Returns' Daylilies. The 4" ruffled blooms are fire-engine red with a yellow-to-green throat that are held high on 21" stems. And it's surrounded by thick foliage in a soothing green color. What a gorgeous contrast!
Plus, this beauty is an easy-care, sun-loving perennial that's rust, pest, and drought resistant, making it a perfect choice for everyone looking for a low maintenance, repeat blooming plant that provides plenty of color in your garden. Saves time and money. Perfect throughout your garden or standouts in containers.
Aptly named with a red color that rivels our birdie buddies, Jersey Earlybird 'Cardinal' is simply the plant that just keeps on giving! Check out earlybirddaylily.com or visit http://www.centertonnursery.com/ for more info on this delicious red. - Lynne :)
