    Very reliable blooms, even in the very dry soil of my hilltop garden.

    By far my most consistent "red." This thing performs like a champ year after year in total disregard for what the season's weather is like from year to year. Flowers almost never hang up, showing great form, and their color saturation is excellent. A total charmer of a plant in the garden.

    Bright red self with yellow green throat.
    One of all time famous Daylilies and one of the best minis. Always a delight with a mass display of soft red blooms which open well and are weather resistant. Cast iron constitution. Very susceptible to rust.
