Admira's Braid does have a pretty flower, and when it was introduced, it was a breakthrough in colors and edges.

However, after waiting years for its price to drop so I could grow it, I find that I am disappointed in how poorly the foliage resists leaf streak, a very common daylily foliar fungus. This cultivar can get downright ugly here in Florida, The Land of Fungi. I will probably give this daylily away. It does not bloom well enough to forgive many months of ugly leaves! Others will plant such daylilies so that the leaves can hide, I'd rather grow more healthy plants in the first place. :-)
