I have been growing about seven bunches (each of them were three divisions originally) of these for about three years in Toledo, Ohio. The third year had been fantastic, they grew much bigger than I expected and had many large blooms. These started blooming early and are still in full blooms in mid July. Some of the plants are showing some re-blooming signs with new shoots. The color is simply outstanding. I have several other types of day lilies, but this one almost excels all others. Obviously, I take care of these plants passionately although they don't seem to need much care. The ones around the rose bushes bloomed most, perhaps responding to the regular watering and fertilization that were actually meant for the fussy roses.
