    Beautiful bloom. Low bud count & slower to increase here in my zone 4a garden.

    Tar and Feather was a rounded form in my garden for its first three years. I was starting to think I was sent the wrong plant. But this year, its fourth, it looked how it should. Really weird as most daylilies will show their best in their third year. It's a beauty, so I'm glad I gave it time.
