    This daylily is an amazing performer in my Zone 7A garden. It seemed to bloom forever and the flowers held up well in intense sun. I don't usually like reds, but this has changed my mind!

    Insider Trading is one of my very favorite reds. It holds its color on the hottest days and seems to bloom for a long time. It is well-branched and well-budded.

    I strongly recommend Insider Trading for southern growers. It has thrived in my zone 8b garden. It increases quickly, sends up gorgeous red blooms on strong scapes, produces lots of proliferations, and best of all--has not shown a speck of rust in my garden.
