Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Mainer On Jan 20, 2009, Mainer from Durham, ME (Zone 3a) wrote:

It is a baby so far but it survived a winter and bloomed late season and is so cheerful that I think I will love this ancestor of El Desperado and Panda Bear which I also have and they do very well opening and are very vigorous in this cooler zone so I expect Blackberry Candy gave them this quality.

This is a gorgeous, standout daylily that will make you smile every time you see it. Give it lots of room, as it's a large plant with tall, thick flowerscapes. The blooms are large and very round in appearance with striking coloring. I have this is front of my house with purple bee balm growing behind it and it looks just beautiful. It grows and flowers well even in part shade where I have it. You will find, as with many other daylilies, that the colors are even more vibrant in part-shade. Some daylilies get sun fade. The coloring on Blackberry Candy really pops in partly shady areas. Highly recommended.
