This lily has done very well in my garden. It is very large and bright and I just love it! It will always have a spot of it's own in my gardens.

Received it as a gift in '99 and it has always performed well for me. Has quadrupled in size. The flower color here is much more like Wanda's photo than any other. It's reliably late in the garden and a pleasure to own. It is opening when the other daylilies in that section are almost done. Lovely in a bit of shade.

One of my later blooming varieties here in zone 4. Large blooms with good color. A real eye catcher.
