I have had Dublin Elaine for about 5 years and divided twice already. She starts late and finishes even later AKA she is still blooming here in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada.

This is my first year with this one and the number of blooms has astounded me. It's been blooming for almost two solid months with very high bloom count. My favorite daylily!

One of my most prolific daylilies, and beautiful also. This daylily blooms nonstop for a month or longer. It had a bounty of buds on numerous scapes. One of my prettiest daylilies.
