I bought this plant as a potted single fan at a local nursery in the summer of 2014. It has wintered two winters in my northern garden, and survived. It has not bloomed for me, however, it is not in the sunniest of locations. We have limbed the trees up in that area, and it is getting more sun now. If it doesn't bloom this summer, I am going to move it out into a sunnier part of the property. I just checked it, and it has three fans now, so isn't increasing quickly for me here. It has survived, though, and the winter of 2014-15 was extremely harsh, temperature wise, and this spring has been very long and cold, so it seems to be winter hardy in a northern garden.

This was one of the daylilies that got pitched during my one year of rust. It was covered and I won't fool with rust. I wasn't overly fond of it anyway. Although it photographs with a white ground color, it was an unattractive off white that I didn't care for. This is my own prejudice as other people are more forgiving of this "fault" and other daylilies with a similar coloration (Bullfrog Kisses comes to mind) are very popular. Just not my thing.....Maryl

I had one fan of this in spring 2014, bloomed in 2014 and 2015 but just few bloom per year. Now it has the second fan but still no scapes. I had to move it the past spring because I needed to rearrange the garden. In general the DLs in native soil don't increase fast and so did this.
I loved the blooms so I hope it will bloom again. I am in North Italy, winters have been very mild and it stayed green, but the native soil is a bit problematic. I don't have rust so I can't speak for that.
Here's my picture of blooms:

What I received when purchased was doubtful for survival but it surprised me and has grown to be a triple fan in two years. It hasn't flowered yet but judging from the size of growths this year I should get a scape or two on it.

I got this one when it first was introduced from Pat. IT survived, never looked like the FL pictures ( edge wasn't as good) . The plant always struggled in this climate, , never thrived, and after about 7 years of giving this every opportunity to succeed, I said I'm done with this one and gave it away. IT was only about 4 fans after at least7 years . Too many good ones to waste precious garden space on wimps.

I planted this one in August last year as a double fan from a pot. I wonder if it was frequently watered in the huge outdoor nursery from which it came. I think it was somewhat neglected in its' travel to my garden. I just checked and there are 4 fans out of the ground right now albeit shorter fans than any of the others around it. I am just happy it survived. Of course, I have not seen a bloom.

And I have just edited this to say the plant sold as Ageless Beauty to me is actually blooming a white bloom. Obviously not the right plant. Northland nursery are not carrying it this year so gave me a free fan of Freaky Tiki. I'll wait to see if it is the correct plant. Disappointed!!

Update ...
OK, so this is the third season in the garden and much to my delight, my "Ageless Beauty" sent up several scapes for the first time! I was delighted and anxiously awaiting the blooms. This is what happened ...

Thumb of 2016-07-31/touchofsky/c39325

It is not Ageless Beauty! After three years waiting for it to bloom. It is now a NOID. A beautiful NOID, but still a NOID Grumbling I have contacted the nursery where I bought it and I will see what they say, BUT does anyone here have any idea or guesses as to what cultivar this is?
