  • Posted by adknative (Eagle Bay, New York - Zone 3b) on Jan 12, 2022 8:43 AM concerning plant:
    While Cherry Burst is noted only to zone 5 for hardiness, I have been growing it successfully in zone 3 for several years. We do get quite a lot of snow here, but that would suggest that even in zone 4 --- with a good winter mulch --- it would likely do well.

    This is a very bright burst of colour in the gardens, I can spot it easily from half the garden away. It does boast a nice bud count and yes, because it does bloom early, here in my northern garden I actually do have a rebloom on this daylily ... and reblooming daylilies, in zone 3, are virtually non-existent! If you are in a borderline colder region, I would encourage you to give this one a chance despite its warmer zone listing.
