I have over 125 daylilies in my garden and this is one of my favorites. It took a year to establish...we were in a drought. I thought it would not come back but the next year it tripled in size! It started blooming at the end of June and kept blooming until frost. It had many branches and they were strong, holding up in the rain and wind. It had a high bud count and the blooms were spaced out in time so there was two to three blooms a day for about three to four weeks then it would bloom intermittently until frost. This plant had one fan it's first year, three last year, and this year it looks like six but it is still early spring. Can't wait to see the blooms this year and am considering buying another one! One more thing- it is diamond dusted!! Never saw that documented anywhere.
