When I arrived at the sale, Carved Pumpkin Pie was the first plant in my basket. It has proven to be very hardy and bloomed happily the first year I grew it. It's approximately 30" tall and has a large 6" flower. Sculpted daylilies are very fascinating to me and I hope to add more to my collection in the future.
The American Hemerocallis Society defines a sculpted daylily as: a term to describe three-dimensional structural features involving or emanating from the throat, midrib or elsewhere on the petal surfaces. Carved Pumpkin Pie is a sculpted relief form. Relief forms have ridges of petal tissues which rise from the petal surface radiating outward from the midrib or along the length of the petal between the veins.
This definition keeps it very simple for those of you who could care less, and just appreciate a pretty flower. But if this topic interests you at all, the link below has a very good article that goes into more depth on how this attribute originated and tells about the hybridizers that played an important role.
