    What's that red Amaryllis doing in the daylily bed? In mid-June? Begin With A Bang is the first good red in my garden, and begins the growing season with some of the earliest dormant foliage to emerge. Beautiful gray-green bullets of foliage that scoffs at late spring frosts. The foliage is erect, disease resistant, and stays beautiful until autumn frost. Begin With A Bang has got some terrific qualities: it's a true EE, beginning a week before Stella De Oro. Its size and color are much better than any other red at its season. Begin With A Bang is a light red over a very pale yellow base. It's diamond dusted, sun fast and has a yellow-green throat. It always opens well in cool weather, and looks great in a clump. 12 buds per scape, yet it blooms well into midseason and sometimes reblooms. If you're one of us who can't wait to get those first daylilies of the season, this one is for you.
