    I LOVE the color of this daylily, but it is nearly impossible to catch it correctly with a camera. Deep Ruby Red! It does not fade and holds up well to rain.

    Blooms for a very long time, still blooming here in my zone 5 garden on August 16th. Branching is good, but the blooms are tight at the top of each branch, just because there are so many. Usually it's not an issue due to how bloom time is spread out, but to keep it pretty, it should be deadheaded.

    I have used its pollen successfully, but haven't been able to set a pod on it and I've tried a LOT.

    I have nothing else like it in the garden, and will always grow it. Fabulous.

    I have found this flower to be pod & pollen difficult. Have tried to set pod on it for a couple of seasons. Tried the pollen this summer (2021) with no luck. Has anyone had any experiences with using Reindeer Antlers? Thanks.
