WOW! This one's not just a gorgeous double it puts on quite a performance! Just keeps going on and on! I just purchased a small clump(4 large fans & 2 baby ones) this year, and already 6 scapes! I can see plenty of new fans sprouting too! The color is a gorgeous eye catching melon/peach in my zone 5 garden. It also has one of the best forms I've seen on a double- very full, and looks perfect from morning till night! I have many(very many) daylilies, but this one, so far has to be my most favorite! Also, looks great w/blue butterfly scabiosa or other blue/purple flowers, which shows a beautiful and pleasant contrast!

I love Kropf daylilies, and this one is very popular. Named after one of his sisters, it is a 24" plant with lots of 5.5" double cantaloupe blossoms.
