I told many of my hybridizing friends about the unheard-of performance of this cross of REDNECK REUNION X WEBSTER GIRLS because the first year after its selection as a huge 12" diamond dusted cream flower, it produced a whopping 149 flowers on 5 scapes on a 3 fan clump! The scapes had incredible 8- and 9-way branching and were 50" tall. As the clump matured, it still produced incredible plants with somewhat smaller flowers (9 1/2" to 10") and fewer buds averaging 30 per scape with scapes averaging 45". It is still strongly recurrent and EASILY fertile both ways, even when it is hot. The hybridizing potential for powerful, northern hardy, reblooming tets is unlimited for this robust, powerhouse plant that has continued to perform during two summers of drought. I heard the name spoken by a sportscaster during a Clemson football game, and knew it was the perfect name for this daylily from two of my favorite hybridizing plants for tall, sturdy, well budded, and ideally branched scapes. It has inherited beautiful foliage, as well, with dormant, hardy plant habit. BRING IN THE BEEF blooms mid to late season so it is a season extender with blooms extending well into the late season with its continuous rebloom. Seedlings from BRING IN THE BEEF are big and robust and look very promising.
