South Seas grows about 30" tall with 5.5" blooms that are reliable, consistent, and hold up well in full sun. Last summer it bloomed from July 9 to August 10. Hybridized by Steve Moldovan and registered in 1993, South Seas won an Honorable Mention award in 1998, which recognizes good daylily performance that goes beyond the regional level.
In my garden I like to grow a combination of old-school daylilies with newer ones. South Seas is one of my older keepers. It arrived in my yard almost twenty years ago via proliferation from my friend Roger's garden. This exceptional dormant tetraploid performs like a champ and deserves a spot in any northern garden.
