I happen to really enjoy this daylily. Honestly, If I could only have 10 daylilies, Im pretty sure this would be one of them. Its happy, shows up good in the garden, and if I ever can find seeds on the LA using it, Im all over those seeds.

Lillian's Woman's touch ALWAYS has a clean pretty scape. Flowers are also clean and consistent.
Now if I can just get it to bloom on the day of our show, it is bound to get purple and maybe even be on the front table...it looks that good.
Love what you teach and teach what you love!

Lisa - I have to agree with you!!! Lillian's Woman's Touch is a winner in my garden!

I acquired 3 fans of this cultivar from Lisa in March of this year (2016) and it bloomed on 2 scapes near the end of May. Being a new transplant, I was not expecting it to bloom this year. What a wonderful surprise! No rust either on this plant!
