    Hi Wendy, It has been a while since I’ve seen you. FRUIT OF THE VINE ought to be a perfect fit in your orchard! It is an interesting cross of two Benz daylilies, IMPERIAL CONQUEST by IMPERIAL DECREE. The purple daylily shows teeth . I wonder where that trait came from as neither parent shows teeth. Good to hear from you! Hope to travel to Canada next Spring to the Can-Am.
