I am not sure how long I've had "American Folklore", but it was among the first I acquired when my obsession with Daylilies began some years ago. It has been in a large pot for years, and truly blooms its little head off every year in my Northern Virginia garden - lots of scapes and branching - a very long period of bloom with a lovely lavender-pink flower. Another oldie and a goodie!
