Gardeners' Notes:

This daylily is a very strong grower here for me (with a wonderful scent)! It makes many proliferations, and the bud count is very high.
I started with 3 smallish fans last year, and this year it has filled a 3 foot by 3 foot area. I haven't seen anything like it from my other daylilies.

Have had this daylily for a couple of years, grown in mostly sun. Does not stay evergreen here (barely semi-ev), has not grown much at all and has only bloomed a handful of times. Very disappointing here. May do better inland with more heat.
