I do like the oranges. Modern oranges come in much cleaner and more vibrant shades than the classical (fulvous) "ditch lily" that is deprecated on all sides. However, Stout got much of his reknown from persisting with crossing the near-sterile triploid until he got some results that underlay much of the modern daylily edifice. I remember talking to the late Enman Joiner while visiting his garden in 1989, shortly after he had introduced ORANGE VELVET, priced at $35. I had ordered it sight unseen earlier that spring, one of the few to have done so. (Indeed it was one of the first introductions I ever bought from anyone.) But his garden had subsequently been on Tour for the National Convention that year, at which point he sold out of it. He regretted that he had priced it so low, but he had not thought that an orange would sell all that well. (I used ORANGE VELVET extensively over the years, and it proved an excellent parent, even if it only infrequently conveyed its exact color to the next generation.)
Listed here are all of the diploid and tetraploid
daylilies were are offering from our ORANGE daylily breeding programs. These have
all been selected for excellent performance in our area, as well as for
pleasing color, form and substance. These tend to be hot fiery oranges, visible from a distance, and far superior in color to the familiar "ditch daylily". Several are favorites for providing color late in the season.

Pahoehoe is a Hawaiian word, all vowels pronounced individually, and signifies the type of lava that is originally so fluid, that it solidifies into smooth "Cow Pies", not too uncomfortable to walk on barefooted. That is opposed to the sharp clinkery type, known (obviously) as "Aa".
