PAPAYA

I'm going to call my new daylily "papaya" It just looks like the inside of a ripe papaya. I was so shocked when I went out to the garden to find the rather straggly leaves that appeared a couple of years ago had produced a bloom. I thought it was an offshoot of the ones close by but they are nothing like this color. It must have been from a seed, crossed from two of the varieties in this bed. I have my very own daylily. It's not frilly or unusual but nevertheless I'm very excited.
