Gardeners' Notes:

Blooms and blooms and blooms. I divide them every 3 or 4 years and give away the new plants. Evergreen in my area (Contra Costa County, CA). Only problem is that my dog likes to chew on the leaves so I don't plant them in my back yard and deer take a bite now and then when they are truly desperate.

First time growing this daylily and saw the first few blooms yesterday. The coloring is such a rich, deep red (posted picture). I planted mine in part shade and it's ready to burst with many flowers.
