I have this Hemerocallis and the name is driving me mad.

I cant get beyond the Chantilly
before my brain does 'lace has a pretty face'!

I bought it from Parkers in 1996 along with Bonanza and Aribba.

Its a dusky pink and tends to keep some of its leaves unless it is a very harsh winter. Later to flower than some so doesn't usually get the Hemerocallis gall midge
Any idea anyone.
I had hoped to add the photo from my files but it wont do it. So there is a photo with my blog asking the same thing. what is it?



The photo on your blog helped. It looks like Chantilly Lace (Childs,F. 1963), Diploid & dormant.

I have just looked at the info I have found thanks to Wylie.
So my mind was playing tricks. It is Chantilly Lace [who does have a pretty face!]
Hybridized by F Childs in 1963.
