I purchased this Daylily last month from another All Things Plants member on the Classified Forum. I really didn't expect to see blooms so quickly. I thought it would be next year before any blooms appeared, so I was very surprised to see buds forming within a month after receiving and planting it. I love the color of this bloom and look forward to enjoying many more of these gorgeous flowers in the coming years!
