Hybridized by Gould in 1992, Butter Pecan is a hardy dormant tetraploid. The scapes grow about 32" tall and the large, consistent blooms measure from 6.5 to 7 inches in size. In 2018 Butter Pecan bloomed in my garden from July 16 through August 21.
Butter Pecan was awarded an Honorable Mention in 1999. Established in 1950, the Honorable Mention is the first official 'stamp of approval' by the American Daylily Society, where good performance goes beyond the regional level.
