Received this Daylily from a DG friend last fall. First bloom opened today! Absolutely gorgeous near black bloom and high bud count. I have it planted next to Joan Senior that should bloom in a day or two. Can't wait to see it next to the white one!

Mine bloomed for the 1st time this year, and I am VERY pleased. It was a dark "velvety" near-black. The blooms really "popped" next to pale yellow. Many plants don't look like their official picture. This one did.
