A nice daylily, with medium blooms. Creamy white outer petals with a red interior and yellow throat. Very hardy and a prolific bloomer.

I live in middle Tennessee. This daylily bloomed thru November last year. I have 5 different areas with these lilies & the ones most exposed to sun bloomed the longest. I started with one group of lilies & now have 5. A very good lily--very active lily. I have several other types of lilies, but these bloomed longer than any of the others. Good luck. NANA44

A first year plant just bloomed & bloomed for me. It's a very bright and cheery, little daylily in the garden.
