I used to grow 'Sweet Butter Cream' in my garden and loved it and loved the fact that it was a late blooming Daylily.

When I was growing approx. 400 Daylilies, I searched for late and very late ones to extend the season. Each year, I always looked forward to seeing the late/very late ones, since most Daylilies bloom early to mid season.
