Color is more pinkish than some pics suggest. Hasn't been great here, but it probably depends on the winter. I know it is quite popular; I think there are better reds for this zone. Growth has always been stunted here, but it's endured some awful winters.

This one did not make it past the first Winter. Never saw it bloom. I really wanted to cross it with Forever Redeemed, but never got the chance.

I won this one from Breeze on the Lily Auction in 2017 and it has bloomed every year since. It is in the worst spot in the yard, shaded by azaleas. Nothing else thrives in that area. I like the saturation and richness of the color, but it's a bit short. It's a keeper simply because it blooms consistently every year without much fanfare.

I have had mine a couple of years, love the color of it, but it is really short. Not close to the 30" it is supposed to be, more like 20". It has not lived up to its bud count, but it blooms better than average. Mine is a nice, rich red, but is heavily shaded by taller baptista, maybe that is why?

'Insider Trading" seems like an unusual name for such a beautiful daylily.

I would think "Bloody Massacre" might be better.

Insider Trading does well here despite the competition from nearby plants.
