Gardeners' Notes:

A fantasic hybrid! Could possibly be the best variety of cream coloured, re-blooming, and scented daylily available today. The centre is near-black making this daylily standout in the sunlight and at night.

I have many daylilies but this is one of my favorites for its gorgeous color and huge flowers which stop you in your tracks with its drama

This is one of our favorites in our garden of daylilies. It is one of the first to bloom, and keeps blooming for an extended period. It's power to multiply, the number of fans and scapes each year is amazing! The quality of the blooms, color and contrasting eye are eye catching. No wonder it was a Stout Medal Award Winner!!!

I have a variety of daylilies in my front perennial bed, and this is one that people are drawn to. It's definitely a keeper, even though it seems to be less drought-tolerant than my other daylilies.
