“Winning” Daylily Program Announces Lemony-Fresh 2013 Winner

El Centro, California (NAPSI) - It’s time to think about adding refreshing color and  zest to your garden.

Lemonn Vista, the 2013 All-American Daylily winner, is  both America’s favorite garden color and is an excellent repeat  bloomer, providing a long-term color display.

Lemonn Vista joins the now 20 award-winning  daylilies that have been selected for the coveted All-American title for  their scientifically proven and superior performance nationwide by the  All-American Daylily Selection Council (AADSC).

Recognized for its superior performance in landscapes, Lemonn  Vista paints a beautiful garden picture whether planted solo en masse or  combined with companion perennials. The large, 6?”,   lemony-yellow blooms are fragrant and have heavy substance that withstands  the summer sun. They appear in early to mid-season above 24−30”scapes  and provide a long colorful display throughout the summer.

The Lemonn Vista joins the “Vista™”   series of daylilies known to meet the ideal landscape demand for short-to-mid  height, strong tendency to rebloom, arching  foliage, large, sunfast blooms, good increase, and  uniform scape height. These characteristics create  a spectacular show of colorful blooms that are uniformly displayed to create  a sheet—or vista—of color. Plant Lemonn  Vista in front of roses or other previous All-American Daylily winners such  as Frankly Scarlet or Red Volunteer for a delightful contrast and tidy  foreground to your garden.

The soaring popularity of daylilies, combined with the bewildering  profusion of varieties and growing characteristics, demanded the development  of a standard for daylily excellence. Started in 1987, the All-American  Daylily Selection Council created a scientific methodology that evaluates  daylilies on 52 different characteristics to determine the best varieties and  to create a benchmark for future daylily varieties.

There are more than 48,000 daylilies registered, bred in at least 25  states, by hundreds of individual hybridizers. Using its elaborate testing  program, the AADSC sorts through the thousands of registered daylilies to  award the coveted title of “All-American.”

The flowers are tested for at least two years, with finalists grown for  another three to five years in open-field conditions before the winner or  winners are announced.

The 2013 winner, Lemonn Vista is proudly carried  at many garden centers across the nation and will be a beautiful and fresh  addition to virtually any garden in America.
