Bordello Queen has been in my garden for many years and will remain. Just look at my photo in the database as you can see it is well branched with plenty of bloom and buds also reaches the height posted. Here the thin gold edge is a nice touch to the subtle beauty of this daylily, the dependable hardiness is a must for the north.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!

Bordello Queen has been in my garden for several years also, and will stay. The flower is always pretty, although not unusual or extra large, nothing to make it stand out. Great bud count though, nice branching, reblooms most years, and seems to be in bloom a long time. Definitely a keeper.

I have had Bordello Queen for about 4 years now. It has performed very well here. It is a very soft colour with a pretty pink eye, and blends easily with other colours. It blooms later in my garden, generally in August. It has lots of buds and the flowers open well and stand up to garden conditions.
Here is a picture taken on August 9th, 2018.
