Spacecoast Daylilies does not often
introduce many double cultivars, so when
we do, you know the daylily is really
something special. John Kinnebrew Jr.
picked a bloom of Spacecoast Scarlet
Desire last May when I was down in
Florida and set it on the table where we
kept our hybridizing supplies. Each time I
came back to it, I was struck by this
Voluptuous Beauty. It just Glows, its
velvety thick substance and saturated red
color combined with its size- blooms
literally fill your hand- draws you in again
and again with its magnificence.
Spacecoast Scarlet Desire, at 99 percent
double, is an important daylily in our
hybridizing program. Containing the
genetics from the converted Double Red
Head into a tetraploid, it is literally double
the size of its parent and blows you away
with its beauty. It's a great advancement in
red doubles. The saturated color is
super-sunfast, even in the Florida sun.
Color and sun fastness is so good we have
taken it to single flowers to improve the
color of singles. An outstanding garden
and show flower. A very easy pod and
pollen parent.
