About three months ago, I began an odyssey that took me to places that, in my life long journey as a gardener, I never would have imagined. It all began with a daylily seedling.

Envy Me is a reliable bloomer in my garden. However, the scapes are nowhere near the height that they are registered. While it doesn't bloom down in the foliage the scapes are not very tall. It has also been a poor increaser in my garden. I have to admit though that it is planted on a hill in very rocky soil so that may have something to do with it. I've done many crosses with it and find it to be a very difficult pod parent. In my garden it is a much better pollen parent. I have several seedlings from it using the pollen so I know it is definitely pollen fertile.
