Joe Beitel (Piotrowski 2019)
39”- 45”, 4.25” Late Dor, Dip, terminal Y/W + 2 branches, 30-35 buds. (Global Warming X Holly Hill Fall Harvest)
This one is named for my friend Joe Beitel, who was a pteridologist/botanist/taxonomist and teacher at the New York Botanical Garden. Joe preferred the species daylilies over modern hybrids, so this gives you an idea of what I had in mind with this one. This daylily is especially fitting for Joe because one of its grandparents is Autumn Minaret (parent of Holly Hill Fall Harvest), which is one of Dr. Stout’s hybrids from the species. And as another tie-in, NYBG is where Dr. Stout did his pioneering work studying the sterility of daylilies and other plants. A good landscape daylily, these “plain” golden yellow flowers are a bright spot in the late garden.
