Down East Royale

DOWN EAST ROYAL (Valente, 1997) Tet. 28" M, 6 ", Dor.

A beauty from the late Ron Valente who was known to produce super hardy daylilies from his nursery in Maine. The registration description for this one reads "Red purple RHS 59A with gray purple watermark RHS 186C and a yellow green throat RHS 7A". I look for it to pass on its hardiness, size and watermark to its kids.
