Gail Braunstein quickly clumps up and blooms well. Blooms are very consistent in their look. Color holds well. Pollen fertile, stubborn pod parent



This Daylily is named after a member of my local Daylily club,.

I've grown Gail Braunstein, since Dan introduced it in 2002. I mainly grow Dan Bachman introductions, since they're such great ones and because I like the 'spidery' and "UF" daylilies he specializes in.

Dan has used GB a lot in his hybridizing, since it is a great parent.

I just noticed that I don't have any pics shown for GB. I thought I did, since I've grown it for 13 years. Guess I'll have to do better next year.

Meant to say before that Dan and Jackie live an hour away each way from my home, so that's another reason that I grow a lot of his. I've been buying from him since summer 1999. I was in the daylily club for many years that they belong to (Greater Cincinnati Daylily & Hosta Club) until it was too much because of my Multiple Sclerosis.
