ROSIE MEYER (Alexander, 1957) is an excellent Daylily. Here in Florida, it grows best with some shading, but can grow in full sun. In shadier places, the colors are more vivid, and the plant reblooms more.
ROSIE MEYER sometimes forms proliferations [baby plants] on the blooms stems. These can be removed, potted individually, and thus more ROSIE MEYER.
This plant blooms early, typically starting in late March in Zone 8b Florida.
