Hemerocallis x 'Ethyl Shepherd' (Liliaceae)
(hem-er-o-KAL-is)
Daylily

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.
