‘Primal Scream’ Daylily AAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

The other day I mentioned I had another daylily that was about to bloom called ‘Primal Scream’, well that daylily is screaming now! ‘Primal Scream’ has large orange blooms that have faint hints of reddish coloring in the outer edges of the petals and a more true orange color the further toward the center.

I planted my ‘Primal Scream’ daylily in the birdbath garden which unfortunately no longer has a birdbath. The soldering fell apart around the bracket that held the copper birdbath onto the post. One of these days I’ll get around to repairing the old copper birdbath or maybe I’ll find a new one.

A Master Gardener who lives nearby recently invited our garden club to visit his garden that houses over 600 daylily varieties. I’ve been very curious about his garden for a while now and hope to make a stop up there while the daylilies are still in bloom!

I have to say that ‘Primal Scream’ is one of the most vibrant daylilies I’ve seen but I know that with the ease of daylily hybridization there must be thousands of high quality daylilies available. Now if I can ever get my act in gear maybe I’ll actually hybridize something!

  1. i really love flowers ,, but most of them i dont know the name ..

  2. Actually, you've purchased probably the best daylily in existence today. It won the national popularity poll for 2011 from the American Hemerocaullis Society and has won the following awards: Honorable Mention 1997, Award of Merit 2000, Lambert Webster Award for best Unusual Form Cultivar 2001, Stout Silver Medal 2003.

    Fyi, the Stout Silver Medal is the highest honor a daylily can receive(there is no gold medal).

    You have a real gem there!
