Gardeners' Notes:

Looks promising. I obtained several small single fans last year. Blooms this year were few but plants are still small. For the size of the plant the double blooms are very large. Color is an even light yellow except for some greening in the throat.

I live in Vinton, VA (Z6/7) and have Cabbage Flower in a west-facing garden in clayey soil with sun starting at 2:00 pm. My daylily starts blooming in spring and flowers off and on until fall!!! I wasn't expecting so much repeat. It is like the energizer bunny of daylilies for me. The blooms are substantial and the double bloom is so pretty.
