    One of only a handful of Lambertsons that I own as they generally don't do that well in my climate. This is one of the few exceptions as it always does well and thrives with little attention. A good increaser, flowers well but the flowers can sometimes get crowded on the scape.

    The early flowers are almost identical to Blue-Eyed Butterfly, also by Lambertson, but the later flowers have a more elaborate eye.

    Eyes a Blue is my only daylily introduction by Lambertson. They don't usually do well in my garden, but Eyes a Blue is the exception to the rule. It has been here for many years and is doing great with no extra care needed.
