A richly colored Munson. For a Munson, it holds fairly well. As I recall, a bit shorter here than registered.

This did not fully open for me, I know some people don't care about that, but I like my daylilies to open out fully. So I parted w it. Gorgeous rich color, prominent washed eye and good substance. It increased well for me .

I have had Kabuki Ballet for 8 years and the plant has been slow to increase...I suspect my red, clay soil has something to do with that. However, it won't be leaving my garden as I just love its color. I am also amazed at how it has different looks when it opens, as my three photos show.
