Have a A Few Good Men in a Military bed along with Chesty Puller. It has increased nicely and blooms for at least a month, when it starts.

I got a fan last fall from the Lily Auction and it bloomed for the first time this week. It did not increase but the bloom looks good. I also ordered a double fan from Wynn's Daylily Garden in April and it also bloomed this week. I can see a small fan starting between the two larger fans already. I love the color combination of the cream and purple. The scapes are shorter than registered but this is the first year. I like it!
