Extremely long flowering, possibly the longest of all I have ever grown. Keeps on producing new stems without a warning. September is here and voilá - here are new flowers!

Although My Belle is not registered as fragrant, I find it to be very fragrant. I am delighted that I haven't lost this one as I feared.

I first saw this cultivar at my sister-in-law's Daylily Garden. I wanted a few tall ones, so she gave me some fans.
It was about 6 feet tall in her garden. Mine was small the first few years, but it has multiplied into a large clump and is about 5 feet tall.
Nice yellow blooms hold up in hot weather.
It is one of my favorites, as I always know it will put up a lot of scapes and perform every year.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Windham Tropical Waters') on December 1, Dennis616 wrote:

Every year there is always a poly bloom among the first blooms. Unfortunately all blooms of this plant have had a tendency to be blotchy and weakly colored for me. Has struggled to increase clump size. Might be that it wants more premium soil conditions, and/or a more southern climate.

This vigorous plant is the most prolific bloomer I currently grow. It blooms and instant re-blooms. Quantity of blooms is amazing. Then it rests a bit and re-blooms again until frost. In Michigan. Amazing!

This daylily is a top-notch landscape plant. Tough as nails, handles tough winter exposure and summer drought with ease. Vigorous grower. Monstrous scapes with lots of blooms that have great color. It is a winner.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Tower Power') on November 21, Dennis616 wrote:

This is a great landscape plant. Vigorous and tough. Blooms are consistently perfect. Surprisingly large number of blooms for being so large. Puts on a great show for a long bloom period.

This plant has surprised me by becoming one of my favorites. It is pretty much flawless in my opinion. Vigorous, quickly growing into a large clump. Floriferous, with lots of well branched scapes loaded with buds. Blooms always are perfect, and photos don't fully capture the gorgeous deep color of the blooms. A great one.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Patricia Woody') on November 21, Dennis616 wrote:

This plant is tough and a prolific bloomer. One of the first to bloom here so would almost call it early season. It is growing with some tree-root competition here and that could be the cause, but the blooms always seems to have problems: petals not opening fully and poor coloration. Just never delivers a good show of blooms.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Purple Pansy') on November 21, Dennis616 wrote:

Growing this plant for 4 years now and I think every single bloom has been blotchy. The tip of the bloom opens early, allowing water and insects to get in, causing blotches. It is a very tough plant, but never delivers a nice show of blooms.

Does anyone know of the pod/pollen fertility of this one?
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Diva's Choice') on September 23, ppeachpit wrote:

I have this daylily in both sun and shade, this flower is either splotchy or deformed in both. It is rare to have a good looking bloom. It is looking like the best bed is the compost!
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Sunset on Anchor Bay') on September 15, TreeClimber wrote:

Bright orange with darker Red/Orange eye and yellow/orange throat. The bright colors match the intensity of color in so many sunsets over water.

Late bloomer; flowers have nice gold edge but bloom below foliage; rebloom

I would caution anyone in the north (I am z 5a) against purchasing this in the fall. I purchased a double fan in the fall of 2017 from a Ohio grower, and it dwindled to a fragile single fan by spring. It has survived, but barely.

Wonderful plant and one of Judy's rare dips. Does fantastic in my zone 5a garden. Easily fertile both ways. I love it!
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Beautiful Edgings') on August 21, mystlw wrote:

This daylily is truly beautiful. I've had it for two years now, and while it doesn't multiply quickly, it really stood out this year. After a winter of several sub-zero periods, and during a summer of multiple heatwaves, most of my cultivars developed shorter scapes and fewer flowers. This was the one exception! The scapes grew to about 4 ft., and it bloomed for weeks.
I don't know why it did so amazingly well while the others around it struggled, but it was the best part of this less-than-stellar season.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Willow Dean Smith') on August 14, kousa wrote:

This daylily, when crossed with Old Time Italian, produces very good looking offspring. I got some seeds on the LA with this cross, WILLOW DEAN SMITH x OLD TIME ITALIAN. The seeds gave me a couple of seedlings that have the nice look of Willow Dean Smith.
Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Vanilla Fluff') on August 12, Frillylily wrote:

This bloomed a lot for me this year in spite of drought conditions and very high temps for weeks on end. I did supplement water. It has a strong fragrance, every bloom is perfect, and double, and it is not diamond dusted.
