    (Pizza × (Daily Bread × Bitsy))
    A favorite in my garden. Very small plant, looks like grass blades. Not many flowers per scape, but a very reliable rebloomer here in Ohio. Several sets of scapes per year. The color is a soft yellow, so it blends in well with perennials and can easily be worked into the front of the border.

    This is pod fertile, for sure, and the pods have been somewhat irregular in size and shape; some are slightly longer/bigger than others, producing some pods that are more round and others that are more oval. (Most of my daylilies produce pods that look more alike than this cultivar's pods did for me this year.)

    For as non-uniform as the pods are, the seeds are the most uniform in my garden. Penny's Worth is the only one that seems to produce such consistently round seeds...they're almost perfect tiny spheres!

    As for the plant itself, Penny's Worth is a cute little daylily that was blooming later than a lot of my other daylilies this year. It's a shortie with itty blooms, so make sure to put this toward the front of your garden bed.
