This is a beautiful plant, it blooms early and reblooms (even in partial shade) and the color is stunning -- a luscious, saturated reddish-purple-violet. I usually don't expect daylilies to be so gorgeous the first year. I can hardly wait to see how it does next year.

This is only the BEST daylily ever created! I am in Mobile, AL and this one buds out about the same time as Stella's in late March early April and reblooms off and on through November. The color is a rich Claret and is absolutely gorgeous! It also will occasionally leave seed pods after it has bloomed which we planted and have 9 new plants this year alone. Definitely worth it!
