Salmon Sheen is an older daylily, so don't expect it to be like the new offerings. Yes it is reminiscent of the "ditch-liles" of the South - leggy but less orange. Knowings this, /salmon Sheen is a good background for other lilies, mums, and other plantings. II have 6 or 7 clumps of about 25 scapes each (bout time to dig and separate) massed under a crape myrtle. The clumps seem to get enough sun for a great showing. I do make certain that I give it a couple of light feedings each year and water during dry spells

I'm not giving this cultivar a Negative rating, since my issues with it are subjective, but I wouldn't recommend it. The color and appearance is too close to H. fulva for my tastes, and the scapes are long and spindly, and flop everywhere, frequently requiring staking.

I've been growing Salmon Sheen for some time now, and though I've dissed it in the past, complaining about it's legginess and oddball branching habit, I have come to love it's unique bloom.

I'll submit a picture taken yesterday to provide not only an idea of it's individual characteristics, but obviously an upgraded camera as well.

Salmon Sheen is welcome to stay in my garden anytime.
