This daylily has done well for me in my zone 8b garden. I purchased it in 2014 from Shaw's Sunshine Garden for $10.

It has grown from 4 fans to 8 fans, and did rebloom during 2015. It grows a bit taller here than its registered height, reaching 28 inches last summer.

It makes a pretty clump and holds up in the heat fairly well (it gets shade about 4 pm). It is easily pod and pollen fertile. I didn't record exact bud counts, but if I recall it has an average number; enough blooms to last for a five week period last summer, with a rebloom period shortly after the first. The second picture is a bit hazy but shows more of the clump/scape.

Quite short with blooms barely 5". Color is interesting, but this evergreen is not that vigorous here. Definitely doesn't rebloom here. I've kept it, but size, height, and lack of vigor are negatives to me. Opening sometimes is not as flat as I would like.
