This daylily is a real standout in the garden.
The yellow color just seems to grab you.

This beauty cannot be praised too highly. She blooms for us starting in early June and keeps right on going for months. She is said to have no fragrance but we've noticed a faint but sweet scent in the early mornings. The flowers come in masses. They're unstoppable! And more than hardy. We dug up 3 plants from our former home, plunked them unceremoniously into small pots and left them to fend for themselves under a shade tree for an entire season that year. The following spring we divided and planted them and have been rewarded annually with a show that takes our breath away.
