I just planted this daylily this Spring, and I already have flowers. Such a pretty plant with a pretty color. Mine is in partial shade and the color seems to illuminate. Great plant for hot/humid weather and little rain (except the water I give when needed).

Moldovan (1961) 32" tall, Fragrant

Buried Treasure is a super bloomer, with nice tall scapes. Very vigorous in my zone 5 garden, and she always puts on a nice show.
