    'Give Me Eight' is a fun daylily to have in the gardens... of course, first a plant must be suited to your zone and growing conditions, and should have a consistent bloom and enjoyable appearance. 'Give Me Eight' has all that - and more. I believe I read somewhere that it polys about 70% of the time and I do know that it produces polymerous blooms consistently. But what surprised me this year (its 2nd season in the gardens) is how long those blooms last.

    Nowhere have I seen 'Give Me Eight' noted for extended bloom, but in my gardens the flowers regularly last well into a second day. Last week, I kept taking photos of the same two poly blooms to verify how well they were holding up, and they went almost 2 full days before wilting. That's crazy and cool, both at the same time.

    I am not sure if our cooler northern garden season is contributing to their perseverance, but I will attest to the fact that ... here in zone 3... 'Give Me Eight' is well in the lead for extended blooms.
