I bought this plant from the cultivator herself, who was an older woman named Mary who was part Cherokee. They were putting an expressway through or near her daylily farm (in Pasco County) so she was selling everything and shutting it down. I bought several from her, but the Cherokee Mary was my favorite! I seemed to have lost it in a freeze in Land O Lakes, so I need to find another one if someone has any they would like to sell. I still have pictures of it, which i'll post soon.
