Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Mainer On Jul 14, 2007, Mainer from Durham, ME (Zone 3a) wrote:

Very Hardy, goes with other colors and plants like lilium very nicely and is one of the earlier ones to bloom, has a long season of bloom and even reblooms once in a while here in Maine. Parent of Happy Returns which is another great daylily.
