This is a great hem. In my garden, it's always a med/dark rose colour. It shows no rust. It bloomed early, then before the last buds finished it shot up another scape. Opens perfectly and lasts well in the sun. Also does fairly well in very heavy rain.
Another attribute is that it is often half open for a day looking deep rose. Then the following day it is often fully recurved as per my pics.

Outstanding in every way, great parent and extremely fertile both ways. I highly recommend this plant if you work with dip patterns. Also a great garden plant.

Until I received a sweet thumbs up from a user, I didn't know anyone who posted here had purchased the daylily. And to that user, I am hoping that My Friend Mary Jane straightens up for you. She should look much better. However, it's nice to know that you are in zone 8b. I originally thought that the daylily was a semi-evergreen, while now I believe it is actually dormant. So it would be good to follow how the daylily does in zone 8b. Thanks!

In my garden OS is a glowing golden yellow. And it has beautiful velvety substance. Outstanding. It can sometimes do petaloids and polys.

Stunning color in the morning, but blooms fade by the time I come home from work around 4:30. Get your pictures before the sun beats them to death.

In its first season in my garden, Third Witch bloomed from June 26 through August 14. It is lovely, especially planted near yellow-green daylilies that complement its green throat.

One of my favorite daylilies; such a great blend of colors. Usually a coral-rose blend. It can vary, but the picture I posted is the most common color combination that I get, and my favorite.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Beat the Barons') on October 2, Scatterbrain wrote:

Very pretty little daylily which despite being evergreen thrives in a British climate. Was one of the first daylilies I bought and it was the picture of this variety in a gardening magazine that started my interest in daylilies.

Beautiful creamy yellow and deep dusky red eye.

Easy grower and laughs off wet and windy weather. Love it!

One of only a handful of Lambertsons that I own as they generally don't do that well in my climate. This is one of the few exceptions as it always does well and thrives with little attention. A good increaser, flowers well but the flowers can sometimes get crowded on the scape.

The early flowers are almost identical to Blue-Eyed Butterfly, also by Lambertson, but the later flowers have a more elaborate eye.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Little Fat Cat') on October 2, Scatterbrain wrote:

Another of my favourite little ones. Lovely rich cream with lovely shape and substance and beautiful diamond dusting. Nice tall scapes and flowers for a long time.

Has no problem with British cold, wet and windy weather and always opens well even in long periods without sunshine. Always beautiful.

Pollen fertile but can't get pods on it here.

Great little plant, has survived years of neglect planted in a pot which it outgrew a long time ago and still flowers its little heart out.

Beautiful rich red purple, not generally my favourite colour but it is so saturated here that it is gorgeous. Great for wet and windy gardens and will even flower in shade. Has small chalky eye zone.

Have promised it a much bigger pot and a better location next spring!
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Intricate Eyes') on October 2, Scatterbrain wrote:

One of my favourite Lambertsons for my climate (wet, cool and windy). Lovely pinky colour with very good eye, which is clear and bold for me even in less than ideal weather. In my garden it can sometimes be a bitone with much lighter sepals.

I always look forward to this one opening. Fertile both ways for me.

Lovely, lovely plant.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Baby Blues') on October 2, Scatterbrain wrote:

Nice little plant. The colour tends to be more of a fleshy peach shade here rather than lavender, which isn't my favourite colour, but it is vigorous and produces lots of blooms once it is established.

Has produced pods and has fertile pollen too. In my garden it is one that sticks out the pistil before the flower opens so I have most success by pollinating it the night before the flower is going to open.

Has a very definite blue colour to the eye in colder weather, and the flower colour tends to be more of a lavender tone then. Stands up to rain and winds with no problems.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Patchwork Puzzle') on October 2, Scatterbrain wrote:

One of my first daylilies and still a strong favourite, vigorous plant of soft primrose to light lemon depending upon the weather. In the UK sometimes the eye is a thin pencilled eye but other times it can be wider and verging on chalky, either way it is lovely.

Hasn't been fertile for me BUT it was sold as a TET and is always described as a tet but I notice that it is recorded as a dip. on this site and has child plants which are all dip. so I plan to treat it as a dip. next year and hope to get seed crosses from.it.

One of my clearest pinks here in the UK, true pink here not peachy, eye is not always clear in the UK climate but it is always beautiful. Good strong plant and fertile both ways here. In periods of good weather the eye is very pretty.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Mokan Butterfly') on October 2, Scatterbrain wrote:

Mokan Butterfly is one of my favourites, it is very white for me in the North of England (Yorkshire, UK). Tolerates neglect. Love the eye colour which can be medium lavender purple to very dark blue-pure depending upon the weather.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Love Never Ends') on September 29, GrandKidsDaylilyFarm wrote:

Love Never Ends is a beautiful flower when it is in its glory; however, the plant is sometimes very sensitive; it does not like to be transplanted; it does not like to not have water or fertilizer. When these things happen, the bloom will not be right; to achieve the correct bloom, the plant must be established for some time. With some tender loving care, the plant will respond to provide some of God's beauty. Even I, as the hybridizer, have had some blooms that did not look well, but in time and with care, they returned to their normal beauty.

The name comes from the Bible, Jesus' love for us never ends.

Jeremy Chase was named by the late Helen Wheeler for her grandson; I obtained the plant while visiting Helen, who died of cancer later that year. She was very creative with her beautiful daylilies.

Named for another grandson; this beautiful cultivar is also popular in our northern states because of its dormancy.
