I saw a picture of Purple maze and I knew I just had to have it. Purple Maze has the most unusual and impossible to describe coloring and that truly stunning eye zone pattern. I love this daylily.

The first year I had it the flowers were duds, but by the following year it had settled in and was pumping out perfect blooms.
