    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.

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