Olallie Kevin is a little darker than the pictures show, but the pictures aren't too far off. It's a really pretty red color. It didn't bloom the first year in my garden (last year), but that might have been because of the trauma it endured. This year, it flowered well and it has been both pod and pollen fertile! It also doesn't seem to have been impacted by whatever it is that is causing most of my daylilies to be shorter this year; Olallie Kevin was still a pretty decent height.
