These lovely blooms were much more purple than I expected, and also wonderfully fragrant. Mine arrived while I was on vacation, and were very moldy when I opened the box. I thought I had lost them, but soaked them in 10% bleach and planted them anyway. A couple of months later I was rewarded with flowers. A very hardy daylily!
