|I love this Daylily, It is one of my favorites, and I crossed it with almost every cultivar that I had last year. I didn't not measure the height and the bloom size, but I did notice that the scape was medium height, and that the bloom seemed about 4.5-5 inches wide.|

|I purchased this plant from Maryott's last year, and it did not bloom. I am anxious to see it, and use it in hybridizing, as it looks to be a great parent.

|I too purchased this daylily last year. It has done very well in my garden however it did not bloom for me. Hopefully she will this year and I can use her for crossing as I understand that she is an excellent parent.|

|This one has done well despite NOT being in the most ideal garden spot. It has been here since the year it was introduced ( 2006) and has made a nice clump. Last fall, I finally moved it to a better location and am looking forward to seeing it again next summer. Very photogenic - blooms never seem to have a bad hair day!

|This was introduced in 2007 and I bought all three of the candies that year. Still have them all. Precious Candy sets pods well every year for me.

|In my zone 8 garden, this flower grows like a weed! Extremely pod fertile. Great parents in its background and an great parent also. Bud count is in the twenties, scape height around 30".
I recommend this one, too.
