got mister monopoly early last year and planted it, the nursery who I got it from did not send me very good fans and so it did not bloom last year. in fact it disappeared before it really got cold outside making me wonder if I had lost it. I contacted Judy and told her what had happened and she said that it was a hard dormant and that it should come back. it did, but only grew about 2ft. or so and did not have that many buds, but the ones that bloomed were looking just like the pictures that I had seen, so I'm looking for better results next year.

Chuck, you should have bought it from Judy .......... I always get bloom the year it's planted when I order from her in the Spring.

I love this daylily with it's large bright orange blooms and well branched scape. It has those northern genes that make it hardy in the north, but it doesn't increase as fast as some of Judy's other introductions, which is a plus for me.

I love HUGE orange daylilies and MISTER MONOPOLY definitely fits the bill. Like Kathy pointed out, it is very hardy in the north but not a fast multiplier. That being said, it never fails to put on a good show and the scapes are truly wonderful. The fact that it doesn't multiply rapidly makes it an ideal garden specimen for those that find digging and dividing huge clumps of daylilies every 2-3 years to be intimidating (like myself). Pollen is good but I have never been able to set a pod on it.

I have set pods on Mister Monopoly, I would rate it as a difficult pod setter, but not impossible.
