I don't grow many dormants in my garden, but this is such a good performer all over our city, you can't go wrong with it.

I love this old timer. I have had it for several years now. It is right behind my Darius which blooms about a or so month later. I love the mix of colors.

I really enjoy the vibrant color of this daylily, especially in the midst of the purplish plants around them: Russian Sage and Ballon Flowers.

I planted four of them last year. All had blooms. This year, 3 bloomed as usual. The 4th, which was planted in the same area as the other 3, was late to bloom. Not only that, but the flower "stalk"? that is supposed to shoot out from the leaves and have the blooms at or above the leaf height, did not appear. The blooms came out from the base of the plant.
