  • Posted by kimkats (Md - Zone 6a) on Dec 12, 2010 2:12 AM concerning plant:
    Heavy bloom with good rebloom.
    Extremely pod fertile in my garden. Will make "bee pods" if you don't dead-head.
    Very fast increaser.
    Easy to find at most mass merchants.

    Black Eyed Stella does not rebloom in my garden although it is listed as a rebloomer. Needs to be deadheaded to prevent setting numerous bee pods. This daylily usually starts out my bloom season somewhere around the 21-24 of June each year.
