i love this daylily! i am very very happy with its performance and growth rate.

the color is so nice at this time of the year. i also love the scent, so floral and jasmine-like.

last year it did send up more blooms after the first scapes faded.

It grows beautifully way down here! The fragrance is not as strong here, no doubt due to the heat. However, here, it is a re-bloomer & only goes slightly semi-dormant. A joy to have!

Very hardy in my zone, a beautiful color and no matter where I stick it, it will bloom. This is in the very coldest raised bed I have and the weather does not bother it and I have some under shady conditions and it blooms slightly about a week later is all. Love it.

This is definitely one of my very favorite dayliles, in spite of the fact that I usually prefer the singles. It's a really gorgeous bloom on a very healthy plant, and I ADORE the color. From a distance, it strongly resembles a rose. It's a KEEPER!

In a large grouping that started with four plants, this double classic is a show stopper! The tawny-apricot color never fails to get someone begging me for a cutting!
