I've had Forsyth High Tech since 2015. It has bloomed for me each year, but I do not think it is particularly happy in my garden. It hasn't really increased in that time. I wish it would, because I love the flowers and it is both pod and pollen fertile for me. It is planted in a raised bed, but it gets way more sun than most daylilies in my garden (trying to recreate the North Carolina sunshine it came from). I'm hoping it is just taking its time settling in and that soon I'll start seeing some good growth.
