I received Coral Majority last year, and it has multiplied very quickly into a nice size clump. It is a very unique color that I lke very much. CM bloomed late on strong thick scapes with a good amount of buds. It didn't rebloom for me, but had a very high scape density. I was able to set a few late pods on it.

Coral Majority starts blooming in July here, and with rebloom, often blooms into August and September.

Debra - I didn't realize that I had already given you an acorn for your evaluation. So you lucked out and got 2 acorns from me for this cultivar featured. Hilarious! Hilarious! Thumbs up

This is a really nice overall daylily. It retains a good amount of color until late in the day despite temperatures in the 90's and in a pot has been very winter hardy even making it through the bad winter of 2012-2013. Last year for some reason a newly divided plant sent up multiple scapes of doubles which were REALLY nice looking. Another backbone daylily in my garden...........Maryl

I just received Coral Majority a couple of months ago as a bonus with a couple of other purchases. I placed it in an old leaky horse trough with some good soil along with the other daylilies I ordered. Everyone seems to be growing well and I can't wait until I get through my 2nd knee replacement (first was Sept 24, second is Dec 8) and well enough to prep some new areas for my daylilies gotten this fall. Then comes spring! and I'll be able to see the color of this daylily and let you know about its habits here in North Florida.
