I love the color on this one. It survived a Maine winter just fine in the sheltered area and bloomed in partial shade this summer.

A beautiful cultivar with plenty of blooms to go around. The color is very hard to capture on film, and is best appreciated in person. Photographs tend to add purple hues where there are none. It really is a stunning daylily.
