Hemerocallis x 'Ethyl Shepherd' (Liliaceae)
Another great Daylily from the collection of Jim Massey, the blooms of this hybrid caught my eye, even among the vast field of blooming daylilies. Orange sherbet sepals, with a subtle pink midrib and bold black stamens, distinguish this hybrid from Maine (Barth 1979). Like other Daylilies, 'Ethyl' likes full sun and is drought-tolerant.
Bloom color: orange with pink
Bloom period: early-summer
Container size: Gal.
