Updated Summer 2006 - I can't say enough nice things about this daylily. Lots of scapes, and lots of buds (30+) on each scape this year. Colors are again as pretty as the first picture I took.

I just planted Breed Apart this spring so I didn't expect it to bloom this year but it did, and it's blooms didn't disappoint me.

Parentage is FAIRY FILIGREE X Sdlg. While a tad slower to increase here in zone 6 NY than its mom, it opens flatter than her in cool weather. I enjoy the stippled effect.
