Absolutely Wonderful.. Beautiful Early Season Bloomer..Very similar to Cerulean Star except it has a much higher bud count and its about two inches shorter at 34'' in. but bushier as it's known to spread much faster than Cerulean Star, and it has a big bloom like laughing skies. I got my Blubird Sky fans from Marietta Gardens in NC, and you couldnt ask for healthier looking fans in a plant than the one's Faye and John sent me..everyone who loves lavender/ blue or pink Spiders must get this for their early blooming daylily garden..i put mine in with iris pallida and allium summer beauty and also wings on high another early bloom lavender spider i can have lavender all summer long!!! peace..mike.
