'Marque Moon' is an endlessly fascinating daylily. Depending on the weather, it will appear either more creamy or more peachy-pink, with a pearlescent sort of sheen at all times known as "diamond dusting." The flowers are huge, the plant vigorous, and the care so easy. Every sunny garden deserves this carefree perennial!The blooms measure 5 to 5½ inches wide, quite large for any daylily and simply spectacular when the plant is in full flower, especially if part of a large planting. And since each 'Marque Moon' can be expected to set 40 buds per scape, the show continues over a very long midsummer season.These flowers are a creamy shade with a primrose-yellow throat and yellow ruffled (pie-crusted) edges. The pink and peach cast shows up best on overcast days, and the diamond dusting glints in the sun. Fabulous!Expect 'Marque Moon' to reach about 24 inches high, thriving in any well-drained soil receiving full sun or very light, partial shade. Like all daylilies, it is virtually indestructible, thriving despite drought, heat, humidity, cold, and poor soil fertility. Once established, this is a carefree perennial you will treasure. Most pests and diseases do not faze it, and it's a happy companion in the border or meadow garden to daffodils as well as other flowering perennials. Zones 3-9.
