(NAPSI)—It’s time to think about adding refreshing color and zest to your garden. Lemonn Vista, the 2013 All-American Daylily winner, is both America’s favorite garden color and is an excellent repeat bloomer, providing a long-term color display.
Lemonn Vista joins the now 20 award-winning daylilies that have been selected for the coveted All-American title for their scientifically proven and superior performance nationwide by the All-American Daylily Selection Council (AADSC).
Recognized for its superior performance in landscapes, Lemonn Vista paints a beautiful garden picture whether planted solo en masse or combined with companion perennials. The large, 6?”, lemony-yellow blooms are fragrant and have heavy substance that withstands the summer sun. They appear in early to mid-season above 24-30”scapes and provide a long colorful display throughout the summer.
The Lemonn Vista joins the “Vista™” series of daylilies known to meet the ideal landscape demand for short-to-mid height, strong tendency to rebloom, arching foliage, large, sunfast blooms, good increase, and uniform scape height. These characteristics create a spectacular show of colorful blooms that are uniformly displayed to create a sheet—or vista—of color. Plant Lemonn Vista in front of roses or other previous All-American Daylily winners such as Frankly Scarlet or Red Volunteer for a delightful contrast and tidy foreground to your garden.
The soaring popularity of daylilies, combined with the bewildering profusion of varieties and growing characteristics, demanded the development of a standard for daylily excellence. Started in 1987, the All-American Daylily Selection Council created a scientific methodology that evaluates daylilies on 52 different characteristics to determine the best varieties and to create a benchmark for future daylily varieties.
There are more than 48,000 daylilies registered, bred in at least 25 states, by hundreds of individual hybridizers. Using its elaborate testing program, the AADSC sorts through the thousands of registered daylilies to award the coveted title of “All-American.”
The flowers are tested for at least two years, with finalists grown for another three to five years in open-field conditions before the winner or winners are announced.
The 2013 winner, Lemonn Vista is proudly carried at many garden centers across the nation and will be a beautiful and fresh addition to virtually any garden in America.
