    By far my favorite yellow daylily!! It does remind me of seersucker fabric – huge yellow flowers draw you right in and make you walk right up to it to get a better look. Simply beautiful!! The first time I saw this flower was at last years Oakes Daylily Festival…it was blooming en masse and I ran up to an employee to ask its name. It was breathtaking and I wanted it. Today as it’s blooming in my garden I have to say it really makes every other daylily look a little ‘less’ by comparison. Great job Oakes on a spectacular daylily!!

    This flower is simply gorgeous!!!! I received it as my free lilly with an order and absolutely love it! It is so much prettier in person than it is on here. The color is a bright lemon yellow, and has a wonderful texture!

    This is one of my all-time favorites. The texture is superb, the color very bright and it blooms forever. It is true that it explodes with color. Every daylily addict should have this plant.

    I have two yellow explosion that are one year old. I like how the blooms open very wide and also the thick texture of the petals. The bright color can be seen way down the block. Also, early in the season, the foliage on mine sticks straight out in all directions and has an informal-funky look which I really like. Would rate higher if it was a rebloomer.

    I have had this dailily for just one year. It bloomed well, with great flower form and substance. It is one of two favorite yellowes that I have in my garden out of many. I would say it is a must have.

    This plant arrived as a bonus with an order that I placed with my mom. I divided it into 2 pieces on arrival,and planted it never expecting to see a bloom this year. What a pleasant surprise it was to discover a lovely bright yellow bloom in July. I look forward to watching this clump multiply.
