This is doing wonderful in my Garden. I planted 1 of these from a vendor because I like the color, and a year later I went back and bought a second from a different vendor not realizing I already had one.

I just divided the original one and got 10 individual fans from it that I am using to create a border.

Purple daylily's may be common, but you do not see this color at your local nursery. I had to go to a daylily farm to get it.

I may be willing to trade adult single fans of it this or next year and I will post photos of it this year.
