    I have a large clump of these and this year they started blooming in June and I had blooms constantly until the middle of September. Stalks are about 20 inches tall and the flower is about 4 inches. This is a beautiful shade of bright orange and it is a double flower.

    This is the daylily that got me to appreciate orange daylilies! It is a beautiful shade of orange, and I don't think I've ever had a bloom that wasn't a double. It always opens very well, and the clump blooms for a very long time. Increase has been great as well.

    Condilla is one of the oldest daylilies in my garden. I have been growing Condilla for many, many years. It is steady and reliable. Condilla blooms well and puts on a pretty show every year.
