Festive Fall is one of my favorite daylilies! It took a couple of years for it to settle in but ever since it has been a great performer in my garden despite being a SEV. I find it to be quite hardy. Late hard frosts do not seem to bother it at all. Despite being registered as a midseason bloomer I find Festive Fall to be an early bloomer in my area. It is typically one of the first of my tetraploid daylilies to bloom each year. The colors are vibrant and really wake up the garden. It is a prolific bloomer and that is not typical for most of the tetraploids in my garden. Definitely recommended!
