'Super Purple' has only been planted in my garden since April 3rd 2015, it was purchased from In The Neighborhood Daylilies.It had it's first bloom on May 28th 2015, and it was very impressive the best I recall. I think I purchased 22 daylilies in that order and 'Super Purple' would rank close to the top performer out of those. It has grown into a nice plant, it has had some rust, but showed good resistance, it had a stout scape and held its blooms up well. I hope to keep better records of my bloom times, and bud counts, etc. next year. Even without those, I do have a feeling 'Super Purple' is going to be a good performer in my garden.

I'll reserve judgement for a while on that, but I do think it has the potential to become a super performer!
