Hemerocallis 'Frans Hals'

Hemerocallis ‘Frans Hals’

This is a bicolored Daylily. Half of the petals are a yellow/orange and the other three are much deeper in color and have a stripe down the middle close to the color of the other petals. The plant is about 2′ tall and flowers maybe 4″ across, although most of them remain somewhat closed.

Said to be named to honor the Dutch painter who painted The Laughing Cavalier.
