This was my first fragrant daylily and I still have it 9 years later. Its color is quite pale, which can be a plus if you're tired of the brighter yellows. The fragrance is definitely "very," and it leans to the sweet side as opposed to the muskier species that escapes my memory. One thing to consider, it's dependent on the time of day that you smell it, so don't get discouraged if it doesn't impress you. Like most fragrant daylilies I have (currently I have 8), its fragrance does not waft very far.

This daylily is simply outstanding. Grows quickly. The flowers are large and striking--they really make an impact from a distance. My previous garden (sold the house) sits back at least 50 feet from the road, and every time I drive by I can see the division I left there simply glowing--what a standout! This may not be an ultra-fancy designer daylily, but it's a super performer and packs a visual punch.
