    If you want a daylily that does well in a pot, Glittering Gown is for you. You will need a fairly large pot, though (12"), as the fans are on the larger size. I feel guilty that I haven't found a spot in the garden for it even though I've had it for years, but it blooms beautifully in the pot and has been steadily increasing each year. The flowers are definitely cream in my garden and not yellow. This is definitely a daylily that can take a lot of stress and neglect.

    This year (2018) we had a very cold start to summer and the flowers were definitely a yellow color. I have not seen this previously but it matches pictures in the database. As the weather warmed the flowers became more typical of what I've seen in the past.
