I planted 'Blueberry Breakfast' last fall, and this summer it already bloomed for me for over 4 weeks. The color will take your breath away. I put it next to 'Indian Giver' and the two of them together are just stunning in the garden.

This is a standout in the daylily garden. The color is an unusual shade (the color you might get if you spilled bluberry pie on a white cloth!) with a darker eyezone. It has show good increase in size and has bloomed very well in 2 different spots in my garden.
