I grew 'Blue-Eyed Butterfly' and loved it!

Because I had to trim the number of Daylilies from approx. 400 to around 20, I don't grow it anymore.

This was one of Luddy Lambertson's early intros and it's a lovely bloom and still unique enough for me to recognize it instantly. I have had mine for many years now, and even though in my new garden I do get a touch of rust on it later in the season, I love it enough to still keep it
