Cleopatra has proven to be one of my earliest bloomers here in zone 8. It has multiplied quite well for me, and blooms profusely for several weeks. A beautiful, elegant, tall daylily.

Cleopatra is listed as an early season bloomer, yet here in southern NH, z5 it is full of buds in early October where out night time temps have now fallen to low 40's and upper 30's. This is a great garden performer that is a wonderful garden addition - keeps the bloom season alive here in this tough gardening zone!
