I chose the name ALL THAT MATTERS because this daylily has all that truly matters in hybridizing daylilies. Gorgeous flowers which open well and hold up in inclement weather: tall, sturdy and well branched scapes with tons of buds (this one bud-builds); healthy plant habits which seldom show signs of any disease or weather damage, and it is easily used for hybridizing. This flower is a stunner in the garden. The tall scapes hold the majestic flowers high for viewing. The deep wine petals are veined in deep purple over the entire surface. Gold ruffled edges surround the petals and the gold to deep green chevron eyezone really sparks up the blooms. Slight pleating in throat area adds some drama. This daylily has been a cornerstone parent both pollen and pod for a few years now, and has proven to be valuable for producing deep colors in red, purple, and wine with exemplary plant habits in the seedlings . It throws better than itself, which is what you want in a parent. A beautiful landscape plant, this is one daylily you can't walk by without admiring it. ALL THAT MATTERS has truly all that matters.
