Fancy Face has perfect blooms every time, and it is also a good increaser.
This is one of my favorite daylilies.
Overall, a great daylily.

I have had Fancy Face for years. It is a very nice bloomer and a striking flower. A row of Fancy Face grew along my driveway side garden for years.

Fancy Face was one of the biggest disappointments I've had with buying daylilies. The colors on mine hardly resemble the photo of cream and blue but it's a horrid gold and orangey brown instead.
