Positive TerriFlorida On Oct 2, 2003, TerriFlorida from Plant City, FL wrote:

MIDNIGHT MAGIC flowers look and feel like they are made of tooled leather. For a flower that lasts a day, that's amazing! It has not recovered as fast from the move to Plant City as my other really dark daylily, Evening Enchantment, did. But it will recover I am sure. Paired with gold daylilies and other perennials, this one is a real stand-out in the garden.
