Carousel Princess has struggled in a planter in my zone 6 garden. Despite that, it was the first daylily I ever had that rebloomed! It bloomed in July of last year and also in September.

Oddly enough, when all the other plants in the planter were either moved or rotted Carousel Princess took off! I'm guessing it doesn't like a lot of competition. In 2018 I suspect it will be the longest blooming daylily in my garden.

Although registered as a semi-evergreen, Carousel Princess acts as a dormant daylily in my northern garden.
