Exceptional daylily in my Southern New Jersey garden. One of my all time favorites. I always have gotten more compliments about this one flower than any other in my garden. Color is always true and doesn't distort with weather or PH change. Fast multiplier with TONS of flower scapes. EXCELLENT cultivar.

Survived two Maine winters so far and the blooms are pretty this year. Last year only had a bloom and it was not expected. Think I am going to like this one very much.

My favorite daylily. Such a beautiful color. I also enjoy the shape of the flower. Fast grower. Several buds each season per plant. A true winner and consistent bloomer! A must for anyone of like daylilies, or needs an easy perennial to add color and interest to the garden. Mine is grown in part-sun.

super nice plant. first year transplant small double fan bloomed very nicely for a baby. not fancy-schmancy like some, but really nice color and engaging to look at. seems to be a good parent as well. the new kid established itself quickly and has already begun to spread nicely. a good garden investment.
