I highly recommend this beautiful daylily. It has been a bit slow to clump up for me but I get lots of blooms in the early to mid season.

This is an outstanding daylily. It does not lean. Spectacular when mulitple blooms are open. It is pod and pollen fertile. Increase has been moderate. It is relatively tall. I am particular about spidery types and I love this one.

A very fine cultivar--floriferous and sturdy.

I just added this one. Planted it yesterday. All I can say about it, it got delayed by usps for 10 days, and survived. I am happy to see such great reviews of it and looking forward to seeing it bloom in my garden. I doubt this year, but will post when I have real review.

Isabelle Rose is an outstanding daylily. It received the most votes from AHS garden judges for the 2020 AM, and had previously been a top recipient for the HM in 2017.

I had seen established clumps in other gardens and knew it was a must-have. It was new to my collection last year and did not reach its full registered height, but the multiple scapes were sturdy and loaded with graceful blooms, and its bloom season extended several weeks.

Although it is registered as light yellow, it has been consistently rated as "Group 3 - comparatively white" in the multi-year whiteness evaluation project headed by Region 3 hybridizer Stuart Kendig. (Other well-known white dayliliies in this group include Clarity of Purpose, Margo Reed Indeed, Early Snow and Lime Frost).

I did observe that although the scapes stand strong and blooms retain their form well on a windy day, the pollen sometimes blows onto the petals. Despite this minor flaw, Isabelle Rose is one of the loveliest white daylilies and warrants a place in your garden.
