Alabama Jubilee gives lots of blooms every year and the color is very eye catching in the garden.

Alabama Jubilee has been in our garden for four years. It is extremely showy. It has been slow to increase, but possibly because it doesn't get sun until noon or thereabouts. It does have some rust here, but the rust has not been severe enough to really damage the plant.

Does ok here in hot humid gulf coast Texas. I have rust;, this plant survives the rust, heat, and humidity well enough, and does re bloom here.

I acquired 4 fans of this cultivar in April of this year. I potted them up together and they are still in a pot. I have plans to transplant it into a raised bed this Fall. It began blooming a month later. It has the brightest and deepest color of orange blooms on any cultivar that I currently own. It is an eye-catcher!

It has not increased at this time, maintaining it's 4 nice-sized fans. Unfortunately, it is showing rust now that early Fall is here. I am seeing the rust starting on the tips on some of it's leaves and will be watching to see what rating it may actually be. I find that disappointing because it was listed to have a 1.0 rust resistant rating.

Alabama Jubilee is new to my garden this year. Transferring it over to my daylily bed in no way diminished this plant, it continued to bloom through it's cycle without missing a beat! The delightful, stand out, red-orange coloring is what drew me to this stunning daylily. I have not noticed any rust, and have been seeing new growth.
