Gardeners' Notes:

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

Bought one plant in 2005 and it died during the winter. Got another in trade a little bigger and has survived two Maine winters but only bloomed this summer two blooms. Not my idea of a Stout Medal winner. Beautiful bloom color though. Perhaps next year it will do something more vigorous. If not, I will need the space for something that will bloom.

I love this daylily! Scapes are not too low (in my garden), they stand well above the plant. While bud count is not as high as some she makes up for it with rebloom. Becky Lynn draws alot of attention in my garden with her beautiful color.

Pretty flower , but not many buds at all. Not my idea of Stout material either.

NOT Extra Early here (Rhode Island). Flowers are VERY pretty, but in short supply.

nice flower, but not an award winner - scapes a bit low.
