This daylily has outbloomed the other 12 varieties I grow here in zone 8b/9a. The plants originally seemed to be the weakest of all but in this, its third year, it has come on strong. It started blooming early-midseason and has continued with many blooms for many weeks. I have not found it to be nocturnal, the blooms being present all day.
