This was my first time growing daylilies. This cultivar was planted in the fall. We had a severe freeze late spring but the plant was virtually uneffected. First bloomed late June / early July. I'm very pleased on how easy it was to grow and how hardy the plant is. I'm also very delighted in how gorgeous the blooms have been.
