I bought Holly Hill Tangelo several years ago and planted it in a small raised bed. It looked healthy enough but never bloomed. For the past year I've been diligent about watering and feeding my neglected daylilies on a regular basis. I'm happy to say this has worked wonders for HHT. The plant sent up 4 scapes this year! The blooms were a much deeper color than ones I'd seen down South. That may have been due to our very mild summer. I dabbed some pollen on it and I got seeds so it is at least pod fertile.
