Let's take a trip this week to Oregon and visit the lovely gardens created by Lynn Smith and her husband, Cliff. It's always fun to step out of our own climate to see what grows well in another, and sometimes it's even more fun to see what our climates have in common. You are going to love what you see!

In my garden, Creative Art is much taller than the registered height, standing at or above the average height for my other daylilies. I measure the two mature scapes at 29" and 21". (The second scape hasn't started blooming yet and may be still growing.) There are three more scapes popping up still at this late date-definitely a late bloomer! I will try to remember to measure them, but if you are hybridizing for daylilies that are at-foliage height, this one falls TALL of that. :D. The scapes are nice and sturdy, though, and there are a good number of buds on it, so it is a good, late-blooming near-white for the yard.
