    Prolific grower and bloomer.

    I've had Dominic in the gardens for more than 5 years ... which, being zone 3 here, means I consider it to be quite reliably hardy. That being said, it's also a gorgeous, deep velvety bloom. In the sun, it's a rich burgundy black-red ... when the day is overcast or the flowers are shaded, it looks nearly black.

    It's always been not only pest-free but also rust-free in my gardens and has a great impact - planted near one of my Incrediball hydrangeas. When they are both blooming, the contrast is just stunning.

    Not only is Dominic perhaps my favorite daylily, it's also one of my favorite flowers, period. Its home is a place of prominence right at the bottom of the front porch steps. The whole family loves to check it out as we come and go.

    This daylily has such a great deep, dark red color that is absolutely gorgeous, and the velvety look/texture is wonderful, too. It makes a really pretty plant. The foliage looks really attractive when it multiplies into a clump. On the less than positive side, it does seem to be highly susceptible to aphids. I had them crawling all over it one year, but it hasn't affected the plant's performance in the least.

    This one did not thrive in my zone 8b garden and was very rust-prone.
