I love 'Magic of Oz'! With the big, bright green throat along with the petal colors, what's not to love about this one! Gorgeous daylily! I used to grow it and then lost it, but I'm very happy to have it again this year. I'm partial to Daylilies with green throats, ones that are on the taller side. and ones that are "spidery," so this 'fits the bill'! One of my favorites!

Magic of Oz is a good healthy plant with a gorgeous flower. I also love the striking green throat. As a bonus it faithfully re-blooms here in northern Illinois.
