Planted two months ago and already blooming. This plant has five scapes, so there should be a good bloom time for a brand new plant. The color of the flower is darker than my photo shows.

'Inky Fingers' is a "spidery" type of daylily. The petals are longer and skinnier than the round daylilies. A nice change in the garden among all the round daylilies blooming. It's fun to watch the petals swaying in the breeze.
