A very nice early spider. It's color and form is affected by the amount of sunlight and wind it receives. I think partial sun and a protected area is best for this daylily. It makes a splash in the back of the border with it's large flowers and tall scapes. I like it and look forward to it's blooms each year!

I've had Long Stocking in my garden for 5 years now. It's very hardy for me. Puts on a great show in the garden with multiple blooms open at the same time.

Planted in Fall 2006. My very first bloom in Spring 2007 was a very rich red, as shown in Melissa_Ohio's picture. However, subsequent blooms are more of a rusty red. Not ugly, but I bought it thinking it was a bright red. We've had lots of rain, so maybe that's affected its coloring.
