I have about 30+ daylilies, and this is one of my favorites for the color & clarity, form, size, and overall look! Peacock Maiden is a huge, striking flower that demands attention with its color and size. It has looked consistently beautiful and opens perfectly every time since its very first flower. And the color holds well, and is never blotchy. I have others that may have some more buds or multiply faster, but this one still does well for me and I wouldn't give this one up for the world!

This Datlily is awsome. I didn't like Spiders until I aquired this one. Bloomed for a full month, reproduces at a good rate. Sun and rain did not negatively effect the color. Did not rebloom

I have never been disappointed in the plant. Huge blooms, usually multiple blooms right up to the last day. It stands above most daylilies yet doesn't flop over after a rain.

Love the colors and the form on this one!
