When I saw First Knight growing in my friend Roger's garden, I had to have it! The flowers have a thick, waxy texture that makes them impervious to sun, wind, rain, whatever. The morning blooms looks quite yellow, but by afternoon they have more of a cream appearance -- and look beautiful both ways. This photo was taken last Sunday, September 27th about 6 pm. My plant grows about 26" tall and has 6" diamond-dusted blooms that are also fragrant.
In 2000, First Knight received an Honorable Mention Award. This is the first official "stamp of approval" by the American Hemerocallis Society where good daylily performance goes beyond the local or regional level. All told, I've had about 8 weeks of bloom from First Knight this season. Love this plant!
