Could a name suit a daylily any better than this one does? "Wild Child" is truly fitting - each bloom is wild and unpredictable. It's fun to see what this plant looks like from day-to-day, because it definitely changes. Even the buds are crazy-looking with hooks and teeth willy-nilly! Wild Child is a Salter daylily, registered in 2002 and categorized as a Unusual Form (UFO) Crispate. Wild Child grows about 24" tall - perfect for the front of the border. It usually blooms from mid-July into mid-August and it looks just great on a 90+ degree day. It has "Startle" and "Ed Brown" in its lineage, although it doesn't show any of Ed's temperamentality. Wild Child is quite hardy and happy in my Wisconsin garden. Love it!
