When I bought this, it was advertised to be 19" high, and great for the front of the border. Not true! It is 32" in my garden, and I do not have good soil. It is good in the back of the border for me, and increases rapidly.

Just finished putting in 45 plants of Lullaby Baby" along a fence line. I say just finished up because I started late last fall and finished today. These buggers are very hardy. The ones that I didn't get into the ground prior to our SE Wisconsin winter I just stored in the garage. By March they were already emerging. Today you cannot tell the difference between the ones planted last fall and the ones planted today. Didn't lose a single plant over winter.

Hardy in my zone and blooms both in the sun and shade. In the shade it looks pinker.

This beautiful daylily is very winter hardy and came back strong after a bad winter. It's delicate bloom color adds so much to the garden.
