I like this flower. It has great substance, interesting coloring and a ruffled edge.

*update April 13, 2012* 2 years after planting the daylily has unfortunately failed to thrive for me. I don't know the causes but after blooming the year it was planted, it failed to flower last summer at all. This year it returned again with the same number of fans it started with 2 years ago so I decided to remove it from my yard. Great flower, poor perfomer for me in my cultural setting. I hope others have better results.

The peach color is beautiful and the flower is huge. Very stout-looking. Early bloomer for me, too.

I find this flower has amazing substance and keeps it's form from first thing in the morning until the sun goes down.
