Ben Arthur Davis is an OUTSTANDING Daylily! The blooms are large and the entire plant is strong. I enjoy seeing the deeply blushed petals early in the morning and watching as they grow more pale throughout the day. This is a great plant for cutting a scape with blooms and buds for an indoor arrangement that will last a number of days.
