Okland Nursery in Dublin, Ohio, zone 5b/6a was selling this daylily early this summer and wow did is smell good. The fully opened blooms were a nice size too. I would not say they are small (like 'Little Grapette' daylily). Purple with some pale lavender and bright yellow throat. Tag said that it is 'very vigorous' and should be a re-bloomer.
