Woodside Rhapsody Daylily/Hémérocalle

This Trophytaker Daylily grows by the pond in a partly shady garden with an eastern exposure in Red Deer, Alberta.  This plant usually waits until August to flower.  The first bloom arrived in mid-August this season.  The 4 inch flowers are deep purple with a green-white throat.  They have a high bud count. They are known to be fragrant ( must remember to check that out next year).
