    The bloom on Thin Man knocks my socks off! I have it planted somewhat close to my garden gate, and when I walk in there and see the bloom, I get stuck for a while! It demands to be drooled over! The bloom is huge, and the color is amazing! This is my first year having blooms, and every one of them has been stunning.

    If you like large blooms, this is a great daylily to get. I haven't been a big fan of red flowers in the past, but this one got me to think differently about the color, and I now love red! It really is amazing!
