MARGO REED INDEED is a very light creamy pink on cool mornings. Most days, and all hot days, it is a cream white. The edge is very ruffled and whiter than the petals. The throat is chartreuse to green. The scapes come up at different times, ensuring a long bloom season. It does some rebloom two weeks later. Gives many proliferations.

Margo Reed Indeed is a lovely plant, and she seemed to be all the rage several years ago, but I find that her scapes can be flimsy and her blooms can have a yellow-green tint to them, so she isn't my favorite daylily. I do like her well enough, though, and consider her a keeper.

I've hybridized with MRI a bit just to see what I get out of her, but can't comment on the offspring yet since I don't think I've planted any of the seeds yet. Appears to be average to better than average pod fertility and average to better than average pollen fertility.
