Gardeners' Notes:

Very prolific bloom for an extended period. Plant this daylily in full sun for correct color. In the shade, mine was a cantaloupe colored self. I quickly moved it! In 8 years I have divided it 5-6 times.

I love this daylily--it really seems to glow. The flowers have beautiful shading, with yellow in the center and the edges of the flower a pale creamy peach. It's smaller than most but very eye-catching. There are lots of peach daylilies out there, but I think this is the prettiest I've seen. And, it reblooms throughout the summer.

Though this is an older Hemerocallis hybrid, I have to say, it is one of my favorites. The leaves are darker green than most and shiny. The flowers are smaller than average BUT they are produced in such profusion that this little daylily blooms in my garden for over a month! I have not had it rebloom in the ten years that I have had it but never say never. It is easy to divide and grow and just performs and performs! It is one of the few peaches that I can pick out by name again and again. It think it is most unique and well worth growing!
