Mayans' Dawn, Daylily

*Mayans' Dawn

*MAYANS’ DAWN  (Pierce, G.)  980-C   (Romeo Prince x Midnight In Paris) EV EM  38”  7.25” flower, 6 way branching, 35-40 buds. This is the biggest, badest, boldest dark full formed daylily we have introduced to date.  Every bloom from first to last will simply knock your socks off.  980-C was selected as the best from a long cross as Romeo Prince is so pod fertile, and it looks exactly like the photo, day after day, from May until beyond September.  Some days I think MAYANS’ DAWN is deep black purple with a red tint, other days it looks the opposite.  Basically it is a deep black cherry red/purple, with a wide white edge with dashes of yellow. It has heavy substance, with a flat face and very wide overlapped petals.  Easily fertile both ways.  Stunning!
