This tall, lovely daylily graces the walkway to our front door. Just planted her last fall and this spring she bloomed her heart out, still going strong at the end of July.

I have had more success with the pollen than pod when hybridizing. This year she produced two pods out of ~15 attempts at pollination. I have several other cultivars that I used her pollen to fertilize that have pods.
