A beautiful Daylily, I have it for two years now. I will be splitting it this spring into two or three plants. No re-blooms, but blooms for weeks. Maryville, TN

I adore this bloom - big, a beautiful color and it's fragrant! Who could ask for more? I'm approaching 70 cultivars in my collection, and R.A. never fails to make me stop, stare at, and smell the blossoms. The pic on my have-list is of conjoined blooms plus one that happened to be open on the same scape (3-4-1 deal!) - and NO, that plant is not for trade.

Hardy here in Maine and I love the diamond dusting in it. Blooms in partial shade and might get muddy but is not destroyed in a heavy rain.
