    This was one of my very favorite daylilies, a beautiful bloomer and rebloomer here in zone 8b. Unfortunately, it was very susceptible to rust, so I had to get rid of it.
  • Posted by LoriMT (Dawsonville, GA - Zone 7b) on Jul 4, 2022 11:25 AM concerning plant:
    I planted Blueberry Candy in March 2017 in a terraced garden dedicated to daylilies in my Zone 7b North Georgia Mountains garden. Some of the daylilies multiplied, forming big clumps and many scapes. Blueberry Candy never thrived. In summer 2022, it had just 2 fans and no scapes. I removed it from my garden.
