The first part of the summer of 2012 was all sorts of wrong, so I was very pleasantly surprised to see So Lovely blooming when August started. The last blossoms of this season opened up in the first week of September.

This is one of the most beautiful 'near white' daylilies I've seen or grown. The large bloom has a wonderful curve that is different from other varieties. I love it.
