As a comment about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Uninhibited')
When not in flower, Uninhibited has wide, gently twisting, deep green foliage. When flowering, the foliage becomes a bit more "leggy." It winters fine in zone 9b, getting my ranking of "10" for staying evergreen in the garden even after 6 weeks of below-freezing overnight temps (to about 28 degrees) and also holds its own during the spring rebound (8-9 rank). It was the first of 90 cultivars to bloom for me this spring, showing its seasonal first scape and buds on 4-29, with blossoms commencing on 5-16 and ending on 5-24.
Five buds were produced on a two-way branching scape; four of them blossomed. Each maintained their extended, open form for about 30 hours. Blooms opened by early morning at 50 degrees. Fading blooms retained their clean color with compressed and gently curving forms. The first flower to blossom was typically under-formed, and the second was a single rather than a fully-formed double. The size and weight of the blooms resulted in the somewhat thinner scape listing at about a 75-degree angle on a breezy day (not unattractive, but it could be sturdier). Its third and fourth blooms were doubles, and appeared on the same day. They were a bit much for the scape, which then became just slightly "bendy" near the top but held its overall form and did not detract from the plant's beauty. Our 9b weather was at about 85 degrees and full-on sun in the garden, so I've uploaded both shade (porch) and sun-bleached (garden) pics, as well as early and later day pics. There is also a close up of how the stamen is fused with the inner (doubled) petal that it produces.
It did not die back after blooming, and did not go through summer dormancy, but it is performing more like a dormant this winter than last, so it may have taken a bit of of hit after the long heat wave this summer. I was able to get seedlings from pods it set, though no pollen crosses from it took on this first try.
