A friend shared a start of Cat's Cradle with me in 2011. She told me it would grow like a weed. Well, the first couple years it bloomed sparsely and without any pattern in its petals. But the third year it had an abundance of blooms which had the pale red on the petals and a green throat. It has become one of my favorites and has a place of honor in the garden. Ann

I've had Cat's Cradle about 5 years, it has multipled pretty well in that time. It is listed as a rebloomer, it rebloomed only once in the time I've had it, but has always bloomed well. It is growing in an area where it copes with no added water during dry summers, and handles that better than other daylilies in that group.
