My Yellow Giant

This is my favorite daylily.  Okay besides Nowhere to Hide and South Seas and …

I do not know its name.

I got it on a hot as hell day at a chaotic event at Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens back in the 1990’s. I wish someone there would identify this giant for me. Hello Daniel Stowe!

This giant has big bubba blooms that amaze me every year. Here is its spent bloom beside a large variety, Mabel Nolan.

Giant and gorgeous!
