This bloom doesn't have the greatest color, in my opinion, but it has a nice-sized bloom and it multiplies well in my garden. It doesn't produce a lot of blooms, though, nor does it seem to have great branching, so I feel like its hybridizing potential is limited. If I ever had to get rid of some of my daylilies, this would probably be among the first several I would let go. Maybe I will think better of it this year after putting it in a different place in my garden.
