I absolutely love the bloom on this daylily, but it has not multiplied or bloomed well for me. It was planted originally at my last house (zone 5a), about 4 or 5 years ago, and never multiplied. It was in bloom when I bought it, and it didn't bloom again until the year before last. I moved it to my new home last year (zone 7b). I was thrilled to see three new fans the other day! I'm very hopeful that it will bloom well in my warmer zone! At least it has multiplied, which is an improvement. I will always keep this one, because it is worth it when it blooms. I just suspect that it does much better in warmer climates than it does in colder climates.

I needed to update this since my last post. Wild Horses is much happier in my warmer zone! I now have at least 10 fans, which is a huge improvement over the original 2 that I had for 4 or 5 years, and it has two scapes on it! The only thing that has changed for the plant is its location. Otherwise, I haven't done anything different as far as fertilizing. It's still in full sun, like it was before, and it looks great! Can't wait to see it bloom!

Wild horses was planted 3 years ago and has not done well in my zone 3a garden to date, it has been slow to multiply with few blooms, of the few that it does produce most are not well formed. Due to the cold spring and cool summer this year I will give it 1 more year to shape up.

Three years in our garden, disappointing because of slow growth and few scapes. Too bad, a very dramatic flower in bloom.
