Once again, someone puts in a neutral with no explanation.
This is another great daylily. It has a wonderful eyezone with the contrasting yellow on the petals. Blooms profusely over a long period. One tough plant, as it went dormant in August 2011 during the drought, but came back in full force this year.
As I lost over 25 DL varieties last year due to drought, Spell Fire is exceptional.
