  • Posted by kimkats (Md - Zone 6a) on Dec 12, 2010 2:26 AM concerning plant:
    An oldie but a goodie. It's one of the last to bloom in my garden.
    I love the height as well. Most years it is taller than me.

    I have not had any luck with pods. However I have several seedlings from it as a pollen parent.

    I would not be without this one.
  • Posted by Joy (Kalama, Wa. - Zone 8b) on Dec 3, 2011 4:53 PM concerning plant:
    Autumn Minaret is very tall (66") and very late flowering. Buff yellow 5" flowers, flushed copper, with pale cinnamon eyezones surrounding gold throats. Well-branched, weather-resistant stems.
  • Posted by nutsfordaylily (Mesa, AZ - Zone 9b) on Oct 8, 2012 9:50 AM concerning plant:
    Wonderful plant. Very tall. Late bloomer to extend the season. Blooms well into Sept. here in my zone 6b Massachusetts garden.
