    I grew Mokan Butterfly before and it was one of my favorites! The flowers were beautiful. It was a cheery sight when it was in bloom. I remembering it grew well. A great daylily to grow!

    The reason I don't grow it anymore is that I had approx. 400 daylilies at the time and needed to cut back a lot of the ones I grew. I'm growing taller dayliles that are the 'Spidery' and unusual forms now.

    Mokan Butterfly is one of my favourites, it is very white for me in the North of England (Yorkshire, UK). Tolerates neglect. Love the eye colour which can be medium lavender purple to very dark blue-purple depending upon the weather.
