Great plant. One of the first to bloom and continues to do so throughout the season.

First time planting any kind of garden. My wife and I planted over 300 flower plants in our yard. We have over 30 Red Magic Daylily's. The soil is filled with stones and drains well. It is also moist and the Lily's are in full sun. We are watering all are plants every two weeks with Miracle Grow. The flowers are just coming out with a rich red color. We water once in the morning and once at dusk. We live in zone 7.

This is a very heavy bloomer. A mature clump will be covered in scapes. The petals are very curved, wide open, and spidery. A nice hardy plant.
