Gardeners' Notes:

Last year, two Purple d'Oro were sold to me by mistake. (They were labeled Stella d'Oro.) But I am pleased and glad to have them. They are blooming prolifically ~ more than any of my other daylilies, and I have many varieties. I will try to attach a photo. Maybe the flower's performance varies with the microclimate it's planted in.

Fargo, ND zone 4a. A friend and I have had this for about 5 years. Lucky to get 1 or 2 scapes with half dozen blooms. Advertised as a rebloomer but doesn't even bloom the first time

Okland Nursery in Dublin, Ohio, zone 5b/6a was selling this daylily early this summer and wow did is smell good. The fully opened blooms were a nice size too. I would not say they are small (like 'Little Grapette' daylily). Purple with some pale lavender and bright yellow throat. Tag said that it is 'very vigorous' and should be a re-bloomer.
