This daylily has been in my garden for about 25 years and is a great performer. It blooms heavily and consistently and always reblooms. It only takes a very short break after its first bloom and then it send ups new scapes for a rebloom. It is an older cultivar and doesn't have the fancy face of many of the new ones, but for a very long bloom period, rebloom and all round toughness, I don't think this one can be beat. Also, it is planted in a partially shaded location, and it doesn't seem to mind one bit!
