Linda Beck is an excellent performer in Zone 6B. We had temperatures below zero last winter here and it didn't hurt this beautiful daylily one bit. I got a few pods from Linda Beck that I hope will make some pretty seedlings.

Linda Beck is a frustrating daylily for me since I hear it praised by so many. That being said, mine (as with many of my daylilies) is grown in a container, and while I've seldom had any "complaints" from my other daylilies maybe this is the problem. She can be pretty if she's not splotchy, but she blooms only average for me with no rebloom. She has been very winter hardy here however, especially given she's in a smallish pot and overwinters outdoors. I am going to move her next year to give her more full day sun to see if that helps. For now she stays with me because she's just too nice when she's at her best to get rid of her.......Maryl

Linda Beck has a beautiful bloom but bud count is always on the low side. I did get a rebloom scape from it this year, and it always sets a few pods for me. I have never had a splotchy bloom and it opens well on cold mornings.

Linda Beck is a very pretty daylily that in my z5A garden looks exactly like it does in the data base. it gets to about 24/25 inches tall and reblooms in my garden, it increased from 3 fans to 10 / 12 fans in 2 full growing seasons in the garden. I do have it kind of in a protected area as I read where it might be a little tender but it has come through the winters here in great shape and as you can see has increased too.
