Another classic daylily that still holds its own against the "latest and greatest" of today's DL's. Very fast increase on this one.

This has turned out to be a pretty variety and a favorite. I was sent 20 free unmarked plants with an order last Spring 2017 from Gilbert Wild & Sons. Last Summer 1/2 bloomed as 'Frans Hals' and 1/2 as 'Prairie Blue Eyes'. I didn't have either, so they were a delightful surprise. This year they are established and 'Prairie' got to be 26" tall with 5" flowers with that faint bluish eye zone that I love.They are just finishing June 10th after blooming late April through all of May.
