Gardeners' Notes:

Positive MollyJane On Apr 16, 2010, MollyJane from Ravenna, OH wrote:

The standard by which all purple daylilies should be measured. Color does not fade in sun. Very floriferous, long bloom season, clumps increase quickly.

Very hardy in my zone and I love the shade of purple that it is. Placed it with Beautiful Edgings and Anna Warner in the maltese cross wooden raised bed.

Lovely little daylily. It is very striking and has a lovely form even if it is quite small. Color is luscious. Great addition to my garden. Blooms starting about July 9.

Lovely, purple color. Great rebloom! The clump takes a while to really get going - slow to make a good sized clump...but overall one of the best smaller rebloomers!! Truly gorgeous color!!

Zone 3 Does wonders with this daylily. Fast multiplier for northern gardens and the color and height are perfect for a front row seat to other taller varieties of daylilies and other perinneals. Great to plant in front of peonies. After the peonies have bloomed out, they make a beautiful tall green background for the new show about to begin. Lightning-Bug
