Very disappointed in this daylily. I have over 100 varieties of daylilies and this is the only one I'm not all that pleased with. The blooms are small and hardly ever open all the way. They often look deformed. It's a shame because it has nice coloring. I've given it about 4-5 years and it's still acting the same way. I have it by my front walk, so I'll be moving it this fall and replacing it with a different daylily with nicer blooms.
