A very nice, double daylily. Blooms in July in my garden.

I have this daylily planted in part shade and is quite beautiful. I planted it back in April and it's been blooming for a week now. So far, it's quite content where it's located with the amount of light and near a Red Maple tree. The color is beautiful when it first opens up but near the end of the day it looks alittle worn...but still beautiful... :)

I must have this in the wrong location because it is not performing well for me, 2 years and this is the first time I have been able to get it to bloom, but now that it is blooming I am amazed at it

Not only survived the winter but bloomed it's first bloom. A double red tet that that actually survives in Maine. I am impressed.

This DL has bloomed 2-3 times this year but I was not able to capture its beauty til today. Excellent double red.

Positive FLGator On Nov 7, 2002, FLGator from Valdosta, GA wrote:

Excellent Red double. One of Mr. Munson's best. Multiples rapidly. A clump in bloom is outstanding and since it is a late bloomer, it comes when others have slowed.
