I have Ming Toy and am willing to send out one or two plants. I live in zone 5B Massachusetts. Ming Toy has been producing for 5 years and I Iove it. RW Wheeler, my grandfather, was the hybridizer in 1947.

I grew this daylily in zone 10 in Fl. where it never disappointed. A star performer. Depending on the weather in any given year it could begin blooming in early April & bloom off & on (more on than off) straight through until Sept./Oct. It had no pests or diseases for me. I could always count on a pretty display from Ming Toy. It also made a goodly number of proliferations even in blazing temperatures.
