    Mary Todd is one of my favorite daylilies! It comes through every winter with no problem and I'm in zone 5b freeze/thaw. It's planted in poor soil, part shade and still it performs well every year. Love it!

    Love this Daylily. It is a reliable, long bloomer for me both here in NC and in Mass. Everyone remarks on it and wants a division. A star!
