    I added Raspberry Griffin to my gardens in 2022, so I only have one season to review (at this point)... and already, I absolutely LOVE this daylily! It started blooming for me the last week of July and continued into the 2nd week of August. Not only is it gorgeous, it just kept cranking out blossom after blossom (on its very first season in the gardens).

    The blooms held well on scapes above the foliage - not the tallest by any means, but showing well. And they were extremely consistent not only in the pattern itself but the well-balanced positioning of the petals and sepals being evenly spaced and well-formed. There were 'no' flawed or misshapen blooms. It sent up several scapes and definitely stood out. I can only wonder how much more Raspberry Griffin will offer, once it matures and has become established in the gardens. Definitely one to keep an eye on!

    The base color is not near as yellow here as some pictures posted show. Colors on my display match colors observed by [my] eye in the field.
