$65.00

This daylily reminds me of the blue purple frozen grapes used to make red ice wine here in Nova Scotia. It is a purple flower with a white edging encircling the petals and sepals. It has a green-yellow throat opening to a chalky purple halo. ‘Nova Scotia Ice Wine’ has been a hardy good performing daylily. It is slightly shorter than many of my introductions but has a good mid-sized height of 28”. The large 6” flowers make a good show in an established clump especially with the high bud count of 25 buds per scape. It begins blooming late in the mid-season and with its high bud count it extends well into the late season, adding colour to the garden when many plants have finished blooming for the year. Overall, this is an excellent choice for a daylily that has presence and will bloom over an extended period of weeks. It is a cross between Brian Culver’s ‘Inspiration Road’ and my ‘Emerging Star’. As such, it is a full sibling of my 2021 introduction ‘Ravenmaster’.    $65 SF (single fan)
