|Lore||In 1989, Malanseuns Pleasure Plants of South Africa, sowed seed of Hemerocallis miniature hybrids from Jelitto Seed Company, Germany. One unique seedling produced a dwarf vibrant gold and green variegated plant with rich yellow flowers nestled perfectly atop the twisty foliage. This stunning member of the Lily family adds texture and light to sun or shade gardens alike making it one in a million.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate growing clump 12 in. tall, 24 in. wide.|
|Design Ideas||Daylilies are traditional candidates for the perennial border. They also blend perfectly into mixed and shrub borders. Compound color by massing or combine two complementary colors for a dramatic composition.

Lovely for nesting rough edges of landscape boulders, or for color around rock strewn water features and dry stream beds.|
