About This Daylily

Daylily 'Primal Scream' is one of the most sought-after daylilies available today. It was the winner of the 2003 Stout Medal (the highest honor a daylily can receive). The first time we saw this daylily in bloom among several acres of planting it stopped us in our tracks. Nothing comes close to the huge, glimmering tangerine orange, gold dusted blossoms and green throat of this selection. Officially classified as “unusual form”, the tepals are narrow, twisted, and recurved with loosely ruffled edges. These gigantic blossoms are presented in midsummer on tall, graceful, willowy scapes above the attractive arching foliage.
