This daylily is a mid season bloomer and keeps its amazing red color until the bloom dies.

This is the only daylily that ever rebloomed for me in my zone 5a garden. It only did so the first year that I had it, but I was happy that it did!. The red holds up really well, and is just as pretty at the end of the day as it is in the morning. It made a large clump really quickly!
