The first time I saw the beautiful 'Summer Wind' Daylily in bloom, I had to have it! I've been loving it ever since!

I saw it during its rebloom, but I haven't had any and the reason could be because I have it planted up against the back of the house and under the overhang. It gets the afternoon sun there, so it has to be that it's up against the house. I've had it for a lot of years now and I keep forgetting, somehow to move it. I'm thinking about moving it next Spring where I have my other Daylilies planted and give it some compost, make sure it's has well drained soil and add mulch.

The two photos that I posted that are too pink were taken in the shade in the very early morning before the sun shined on them. That is the actual color when I took the photo. The other I posted is what it looks like otherwise (after the sun shines on it) and the way I love to see it in bloom.

It's an oldie, but goodie!
