This is one of the best variegated grassy looking plants I have grown. I don't particularly like the flowers, as they detract in my opinion from the attractive foliage. The flowers are a deep saturated golden yellow similar to the ever popular Stella d'Oro, perhaps a bit more toward orange. Grows well in Utah in full sun or part shade, although it has been difficult to procure. The variegation is more striking and clear than most true grasses I have grown. Definitely one I would recommend.

I have tried this plant three times. Brought this in spring 2005 by fall it was dead. Got another one to plant that fall it did not come up in spring 2006. What the heck ordered one more for spring it did not last long said the heck with it.....
They are other daylilies planted there that is doing fine.

I purchased this plant summer of 2006. It has remained true to form and is doing pretty good in my garden... would do better if it wasn't overshadowed by some of my other Daylilies that have had a growth spirt this year. It is a Diploid... I figured this out by trying Diploid and Tetraploid pollen on it and also using its pollen on both Diploids and Tetraploids. The only thing that set pod was with Diploids in either direction.

The blooms are small, and it is quite similar to stella de oro, except for the variegation in the leaves.
Many people have mistook this in my garden for variegated liriope. It DOES look a lot like it, same size and everything, except for when it blooms, lol...
