Positive WUVIE On Mar 9, 2007, WUVIE from Hulbert, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

Though I grow quite a variety of daylilies, this
is one I will always grow. It is a super strong scape
which supports a grand bloom which can be seen
from a distance. It stands out in the sun so brightly!

A durable and yet still very beautiful plant indeed.
Not a foofy flower without substance, this one can
put on a show and still go strong.
