I purchased a single fan two years ago. It increased by one fan the first year and had one bloom scape. It has put on an additional fan this year. I'm in zone 5b.

I bought this daylily at a local, reputable garden center five years ago. I didn't know at the time that it was an evergreen, assuming that if it was available locally, it would grow in our zone 4. Alas, as beautiful as it seems in pictures, it has never bloomed for me nor increased. It insists on just being a small green-leaved daylily, hence my negative rating.
