‘Winning’ Daylily Program Announces Lemony-Fresh 2013 Winner

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, pro-viding 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.
Recognized for its superior performance in landscapes, Lemonn Vista paints a beautiful garden pic-ture whether planted solo en masse or combined with companion perennials. The large 6.5-inch lemony-yellow blooms are fragrant and have heavy substance that withstands the summer sun. They appear in early to mid-season 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 Volun-teer 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 differ-ent 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 All-American Daylily Selection Council 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.
