Gardeners' Notes:

Positive riceke On Jul 5, 2012, riceke from Snellville, GA (Zone 7b) wrote:

I planted a dozen of these when I lived in Houston. I used them as a sidewalk border. They grew about 12-14", and had a true apricot bloom with a glitter or sparkling in the color. They grew prolificaly in the Houston heat. Bloomed into fall. Came back every year and multiplied in their places.This is a great plant.

I originally bought this plant just for the apricot color. I was wonderfully surprised to see why the name includes the word "sparkles". The best way I can describe it is that the petals appear to contain a glitter in their DNA--a very gentle glitter like sparkling happens as if tinkerbell has visited. (No photo I have seen captures this beautiful trait)

I have two of these; one receives a bit more sun than the other. The one in more sun did rebloom, the other did not. I would not call this constant bloom--it was slightly less than my Stellas. This is only year two, so I will reserve judgment until next year. I do love the color, though--very pretty.
Update summer 2013 - I divided and moved these to a sunnier spot and they are blooming much more this year. They really are a very pretty color, and the little sparkles are just enchanting.

Wonderful daylily!!!! Got these as seedlings and every one has thrived, grown and really multiplied. Blooms all season, even in part shade. Now three years later, even after trading three clumps, I need to divide and move some. Best pod setter of all my daylilies. Have offspring this year and am hoping for something very special.
