|Jerry Nettles had been just a so-so daylily for me. It does have plenty of blooms, 1st 2 or 3 years I had it, it was splotchy. It started looking much better though. Slow to multiply, and had struggled since I moved it out of a protected area. Some evergreens do fine here, others do not. It went from a large clump after about 10 years to a couple of small fans it 2 years after moving, so I don't think it would do well at all in a colder zone.|

|This is one of few evergreens that grew well in my zone 7. It had a beautiful flower and increased quickly. But I would not recommend it for a sales garden because when you dug it to divide it, 6 or 7 fans would be sharing the same crown so you always had to crack the crown to divide it and then the replanted divisions struggled for a year. It left my garden because it was too hard to divide.|

Thank you for mentioning the dividing of the plant. I've most certainly noticed that some divide well and dividing others is like, well, sumo wrestling. Its never something I-thought of in the context of a negative trait, But your observation is dead on.
I hate having to send out plants with split crowns ,but with some plants, it is just unavoidable. I'll be mentioning this when it's a factor with a particular plant in the future. Great observation!!
PS yeah, Jerry Nettles left here some years ago too.
