I wasn't too crazy about this daylily when I first planted it. The white was too yellow. Then I moved it to a shadier spot and I love it. The white is white, not yellow.

I have a terrible time with tent caterpillars eating this entire tree every summer. The tree has gotten tall enough that I can't reach the caterpillar "tents". I'm not a sprayer. The tree continues to grow but it doesn't bloom very much. Anyone have any organic solutions? Thx.

We had two 25-year-old trees that both blew down in a straight-line windstorm. One of the saddest thing about it was the pair of Baltimore Orioles that continued to visit the blooms even after the trees had blown down. But I have six more saplings coming along nicely, although it will be a while before they bloom.

I like this daylily so much more when it is planted in partial shade. The petals are more yellow when planted in full sun.
