hmmm, i bought this daylily about 6 years ago, the main reason being it's named after me (well not ACTUALLY after me LOL) but this is one of my favorite Hemerocallis hybrids: it blooms like crazy, it's a fast grower, and it has big flowers. on a single plant i've had 4 flowers opened in a single day. i say any daylily addict should have this one in their collection!

I love this daylily! It's a big, robust plant with dark green leaves and thick, stout flower scapes. The blooms are quite large and very unique. It's a beautiful yellow with bronze shadings or unusual markings and ruffling on the edges. Every bloom looks different! Mine always has several blooms open at one time and this is only the third year I've had it. It's growing extremely well in part-shade. It does have an odd habit of the flowers opening low on the plant with some leaves being above the blooms -- but this doesn't hide the enormous, showy flowers. NEW NOTE: Into my 4th year with Matt -- this year, despite a bad drought, it has 68 buds on it -- no, I'm not kidding!! Talk about a prolific bloomer -- wow!! The plant is robust with deep green coloring; blooms large with good substance. A real winner!

Truly a unique daylily with flat flowers that ruffle at the edges, interesting mix of yellow and rust - gets a lot of comments in the garden and does well near the birdfeeder - nobody bothers it so it blooms for a long period here.
