I've had Gauguin since 2014. It took two years for it to settle in and finally produce a bloom. But since it has settled in it has been a great performer in my garden. It takes a while for the blooms to open in my garden especially on cool, overcast mornings. But the flowers are worth the wait! I love the color and size of the blooms. It is a prolific bloomer but is not a particularly good pot setter.

Gauguin acts more like a semi-evergreen in my garden which is probably why it has survived and thrived. It is planted in an area with lots of sun and extremely well-drained soil so that may also help. If you like coral colored daylilies you should definitely get Gauguin.
