Gardeners' Notes:

I love this red velvety daylily. It grows in full sun, part sun and part
shade and is really hard to kill. I live in central Minnesota so our winters a very cold and our summers get very hot and humid, especially in July, August @ September. I bought five additional red daylilies last year and can't wait to see them. They're all various colors of red but I will always love Miracle Maid.

While this may be overlooked as yet another red, Miracle Maid is a tough bloom. Through the rain, this one looks good. Even in the wind, when most cultivars appear beaten and ulgy, Miracle Maid stands strong.

In feeling the petals alone, they almost feel like they are enhanced with plastic.

Stems are long and strong, though crooked. Very nice red I will keep in my garden even though others may be pulled. A good choice for a durable bloom with beauty.
