If you are looking for a very nice late double, this is your daylily! I've grown it for several years now and it is a very reliable double. I believe I had my first single flower on 1 clump (I have 2 clumps; I liked it so much I bought it twice) this year. The flowers are gorgeous and it blooms well even if neglected. Previously it was my latest blooming daylily (late July-mid August), but I've since added ones that bloom later. This is one daylily that I will always have in my garden!
