    Holds color well in heat here in 7A. With temps in the mid nineties this week I have a clump of LM with 28 blooms today and it's one of the few that hasn't melted.

    Edited to add 7/8/14 - sturdy scapes and on a rare occasion looks like a sherbert color polychrome w/
    hints of orange and dark rose.
  • Posted by Polymerous (South San Francisco Bay Area - Zone 9b) on Jul 2, 2018 4:12 PM concerning plant:
    This daylily has excellent substance and opens well despite our cooler/cold nights. It passes on good substance and bloom opening to its seedlings, and also the wide rolling ruffles.

    That said, it generally looks like a cream here, with maybe the barest hint of pink.

    I have a couple of seedlings from it ('Hip to be Square' x 'Linda's Magic') which start out with definite pink in the morning shade, but the pink fades. I have to wonder if they and 'Linda's Magic' are photosensitive, hence the "Magic".
