Amazing daylily! I just planted two of them about a month ago, the leaves aren't even all the way up yet and they are covered with big buds! Not blue, but a rich purple with a yellow throat.

Not "blue," like its name but a rich velvety purple. I only have had it one year, but last summer even though the plants were still small, the flowers were quite large (6") and it bloomed for 4-5 weeks. It did not fade or wilt in the heat. Very nice.
