This plant is healthy and has grown nicely over the past two years. and it does re-bloom, although not well. However in my soil (sandy loam with compost) it is an ugly maroon color that is not remotely "rosy". My neighbors' rosy returns are the same ugly color. I plan to replace it next spring.

This is a great reblooming daylily. Finally something besides yellow. The shades of pink in this daylily are not overwhelming and are great in mass plantings. On many days the flowers looked pretty much like the flower on the plant label they came with. I have mine interplanted with prairie dropseed and it is good looking having the fine texture of the prairie dropseed with the pink. It blooms a really long time. It is worth looking into for design professionals looking to add new colors for consistently performing landscapes.

This is a lovely Daylily. It starts blooming later than "Happy Returns", but then blooms for a much longer time. Mine start to bloom in late May to early June and are still blooming in late August.
