This 36" tall spider was hybridized in 1999 by Margo Reed at Woodhendge Gardens in North Garden, Virginia. (It grows taller than its 30" registered height in my garden.) Grey Witch is a very hardy dormant diploid that grows wonderfully in Wisconsin. It's a robust plant that increased rapidly for me. I had a good-sized clump in just a few years. Blooms are 6" in size and bloom time last summer was from July 9 through August 9.
American Daylily Society Awards:
Award of Merit: 2009
Honorable Mention: 2005
Note: Over the past four or five years I have been a daylily foster mom for Grey Witch. At the end of the 2020 season, Grey Witch moved back home. Due to aggressive downsizing this year, I made the difficult decision not to keep two fans. It is, after all, a fantastic plant! No worries...I can visit Grey Witch any time I want :)
