    Cream with purple eyezone and green throat.
    Very susceptible to rust.
    Very hardy and vigorous cream to near white with beautifully contrasting rich purple-violet eyezone. High bud count and long season of bloom, but the scapes have to be cleaned of spent flowers regularly as they are clustered a bit too close together in a multiple top cluster and stick and readily fuse together. Probably best in containers or as an edging plant to a larger planting, positions where the spent flowers could be easily picked. Growth excellent and lush, and the flowers are showy and beautiful.

    I like this daylily so much more when it is planted in partial shade. The petals are more yellow when planted in full sun.

    I wasn't too crazy about this daylily when I first planted it. The white was too yellow. Then I moved it to a shadier spot and I love it. The white is white, not yellow.

    It's my favorite in the contrasting 'Eye' category. The colors really brighten up a darker area and stand out well with darker foliage plants. Mine bloomed all of May and now into June. As they multiply I intend to make a row of them as I think it will make a striking statement.
