Strong growing, lush foliage. Opens early and well. Very good performer, easily split up and propagated.

This is one of my first daylilies to bloom. It has been split and moved more than once and remains hardy and thrives quite well in zone 5. It has lush beautiful blooms and has extended blooms, but it depends on the weather as to whether or not it has reblooms. Last year it had several reblooms and this year none.
