The velvety texture of the flowers mentioned by a previous poster really does add to the beauty of this one. It is kind of plain, but when it's in full bloom it's really striking.

I received Bama Bound as a very poor quality division from a mail order nursery--my complaint was resolved with a refund. To my surprise it struggled thru the first year and survived a very bad winter. In this 2nd year it is putting forth beautiful deep red blossoms with slight ruffling on the edges. It has a velvety appearance and retains color well through the day. It is somewhat of a plain looking daylily, but with a "Wow" color. A very nice addition to the flower garden. farmerjoy
