I have found Final Touch to start blooming surprisingly early. With a name like that, I thought it would be a late starter, but it actually starts in about the first week of July (probably mid-June this year). It blooms for a season lasting at least four to six weeks. Quite often there are still buds coming into the beginning of frost, which would be September or even October. The only other daylily that might have a longer run, is Clin d'oeil a Zoe, bred by the owners of Hemerocallis Montfort in Quebec. It was the first coloured daylily other than Middendorfii and Aztec Evergreen, (the yellows and the golds) to start early, (this year it already started on May 19th), and it will keep going into October or November, depending on our first hard frost date.
