Gardeners' Notes:

As many others have commented, this daylily provides many big, beatiful blooms at the end of summer. A favorite for me, especially as it was a gift from my parents!

Positive nwh On Oct 17, 2009, nwh from Chicago, IL wrote:

Extremely vigorous from the time it was first planted, it bloomed prolifically with several scapes the first year. The color is unique and each flower is a little different, with streaks of reddish pink and yellow. Definitely one of my favorites.

Positive Mainer On Jan 20, 2009, Mainer from Durham, ME (Zone 3a) wrote:

Love this plant because it blooms at the end our our daylily season when so few do bloom and it is so vigorous. The deep pink color is helped out by our cooler climate and the water we have in abundance here.That pic was a second year plant in my triangle of the maltese cross. Now it is a huge clump and has already been divided once.

This is an awesome daylily. I have had people ask me what exactly it was because they liked the tropical color blending. It has done well once planted and filled in very quickly.

I've not experienced good luck with this particular variety. I've planted several over the years in various parts of my garden where I already have daylilies, but I've of yet to see one of these bloom! I get foliage for one season and then... nothing. I'm not sure why this particular cultivar fails to bloom for me.

Beautiful, 6 in large blooms late in the season. Mine arrived while I was on vacation, when I arrived home the roots were very moldy. I thought they were lost, but I soaked them in 10% bleach solution, planted them, and a few months later got really beautiful blooms.
