Beautiful daylily! Perfect compact plant, prolific bloomer, & beautiful color. Excellent performance! I find her color to be more of a cherry to rosey red with a soft 1/8-1/4" outline of pale pink that really brings out the color of the petals. Looks beautiful from morning to night. The pic I posted came out very true to color for my zone 5-6 garden. Color holds well considering she's in all day sun- and a great rebloomer, too! Excellent choice
