Robert Koehne (April 1971-September 2014) Bob was a good personal friend and very enthusiastic gardener – perennially cheerful. He loved his wife and two children and daylily breeding. These daylilies are his “children” too. He died of colon cancer too soon – before he could grow grey with Darby or see his kids or his daylilies grow up. We are growing on the daylilies Bob hybridized. The proceeds go to his family. This Daylily was nothing more than a seedling when Bob died. Tetraploid hybridized by Bob in 2013, only a seedling when Bob passed. We named it.
Blossom a rich Merlo wine with thinnest white edging. The golden eye splays like the rays of sunshine. Mid-season bloom.
