Got a double fan of H. Mary's Gold in 2008 and put one fan on each side of the bridge in my sitting garden. It has multiplied wonderfully.

Mary's Gold is another daylily I would not give up. At 34 inches high and with rich golden 6.5-inch blooms, it is impressive. It received Honorable Mention in 1988, the Award of Merit in 1991, and the Lenington All American Award in 2005.

The flowers on this plant are an older form (i.e. not very ruffled) but they are large blooms and have great, standout golden color. This is an "oldie but goody" if you don't mind the lack of rebloom.

I used to grow this beautiful and brilliant Daylily! I remember it looking just like the photo posted by sandnsea2. It would be a great Daylily to grow because it stands out in the distance and it is bright, beautiful, and a great grower. I used to love seeing this 'Mary's Gold' in bloom every year! The reason I don't have it anymore is that I had to cut back severely from the amount of Daylilies I used to grow from approx. 400 to a couple of dozen.
It's an oldie but a goodie!
