My only gripe about this daylily was that the scapes were short so that I had to move it into the front row of daylilies.

Beautiful daylily! One of the most fragrant in my yard, it has a lot of things going for it, in my opinion. I've had it for several years and this past winter it had to overwinter above ground in a pot and it is currently suffering from spring sickness, so I don't know if that's related to genetics or just a poor luck of the draw. Regardless, I highly recommend this daylily, it has nice, strong scapes, beautiful fragrance, a beautiful bloom, and it adds a beautiful color late in the daylily season.
