Lovely little daylily--took a while to get established here in UK but in its defence it was neglected for a couple of years.

Darkest purple with blue-ink eye on first flowers, lightened to an antique dusky purple (but still very dark) with powdery lavender eye on later flowers. Both versions are very pretty.

Poor pollen but sets pods VERY easily, all flowers pollenated developed pods which at the time of writing are 5 weeks old and look to be good pods.

One of my favourites (along with Star Child).
