What a trooper! One of my 2-year old plants had over 240 buds last year. But it's not as mini as I'd expected.

This is by far the smallest Daylily I have ever come upon. It goes out of bloom for a while in mid July here (Westen New York State) but begins to bloom again later in the summer. A true miniature with even the tiny leaves in scale. Grows quickly and soon there are more than enough to go just about everywhere at the front of the border.

This plant blooms like crazy. In Clarkesville, it starts blooming the first of May and blooms all summer until frost. I keep the seed pods from forming because I get all the plants I need and then some just by dividing the plants. No problem with pests, drought tolerant. The deer don't seem to like it. Masses of bright cheerful blooms.
