The 2007 season was the first year for Zinfandel in my garden, and it was a lovely addition. A very deep rich color which was more sunfast than most of my other dark daylilies in the hot mid-day sun on the patio.

Astoundingly substantial blooms, produced in profusion over a long season. Shows much better in person than in the photos.
