    2021 was my first year with this plant. All of the blooms barely opened and were very crinkled/misshapen. The flower also seemed more red/gold than pink. I'm wondering if I got a bad one? I'm hoping it performs better this year. I've been wanting this daylily because my husband has the same name!
