I planted this daylily a couple of years ago after buying it directly from Tim Bell. I had placed an order and one daylily was not available, so Tim called me and I picked this one as a replacement. I love this daylily it has nice height at 30" and it grows well in my garden, I have not counted the bud count here. You can see from my photo it is a breathtaking bloom, I was surprised at how beautiful it is considering I made a fast pick. I will never remove Mountains Bow Down from my garden.

If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!
