Carnival in Mexico is a multiple award winner hybridized by Victor Santa Lucia of Iron Gate Gardens. In 2012 it won the Stout Silver Medal which is the highest award a daylily can get. Just one daylily is given this honor each year. It also won an Award of Merit in 2010, an Honorable Mention in 2005, a Don C. Stevens Award in 2011 for the most outstanding eyed or banded daylily, and finally the XLD (Extra Large Diameter) Award in 2010. This is a dormant daylily you can't go wrong with!
