Mad Dogs and Englishmen - 2013

Mad Dogs And Englishmen took 2nd place in the Elizabeth Nesmith Award For Best Clump by a Region 4 hybridizer, at the 2022, Region 4 Conference. It's a screaming bright yellow self, that attracts the eye from across the garden or yard. The unique form can take on a variety of guises, from a horned devil, to a floppy eared cocker spaniel. The vibrant color holds, showing only the slightest of bleaching, most notably at the edges, in temps that hit the mid to upper 90's. Mad Dogs and Englishmen took its name from a line the 1931 song of that name, written by Noel Coward, with its ability to tolerate extreme sun. "Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun." It has a very high garden presence, & blooms from the 1st week in July to the last week in August, in my zone 5 garden, & a full sib to Paper Lion.
