Rose Masterpiece is a great performer for me in my Kentucky red clay soil. It is one of my earlier blooming daylilies and I look forward to seeing those bright pink blooms. It also does a good job of setting seed pods for me.

I just sent my "not into daylilies" gardening friend in California a couple of fans of Rose Masterpiece. I NEVER mail daylilies but I was afraid that this variety may one day be unobtainable. It is a wonderful daylily for me. One of the first daylilies to bloom, it has scapes popping up as I type. The large blooms have excellent substance and almost always good form. Mine grows in a container and has survived brief minus zero temperatures in which other potted daylilies have succumbed. It grows at a good pace, but never overwhelms, particularly important if container grown. I've never had mine rebloom, but that's not unusual in my climate. If you can't tell, I really like this one and recommend it..........Maryl

Rose Masterpiece was new to my garden last summer ( 2015). I received two fans that had a scape with buds on it. I planted it and a bloom opened the next day. I was so impressed with how well it bloomed it's first summer and this year, the fans have tripled!

First flower last summer:

Love the color on this one and am so glad to hear good things about it. Got only a single fan in 2013, so have not seen it enough to give an evaluation. Excited to see what it will do this year.

This daylily is very photogenic seems like I always take pictures of this one, although I don't think I have posted one here and they are not on this computer. I would love to have this daylily bloom even longer here.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!
