An interesting smaller bloom that increases quickly. Sometimes blooms beneath foliage here.

This beauty has not performed as vigorous in 2020 as in 2019. I think the area was drier than the last 2 years. With health issues I didn't supplement water to it on a regular basis & it showed this Spring. I even lost a few of the plants in the clump leaving 3 scrawny plants that did make 1 scape each of 3 flowers each. There's always next year. Thumbs up

I have had this daylily since 2013. It multiplies well, in fact, I had a car roll over it spring of last year and all the fans were broken off. I had thought I had lost it but a month later 3 little fans popped up and it actually had a couple blooms later in the season. This year you would never know anything had happened to it. It is back to a nice sized clump. So it is definitely a hardy one! Love the speckled color and it is a nice short double for the front of a border

I just purchased in 2019 and have not seen it bloom yet, but the plant is doing well, which is not always the case for SE varieties in Maine USA Zone 5a.

I have had this daylily since 2013 and will continue to grow it.
It increases and blooms well.
Short but makes a great look in the front row of the garden.
Stippled pattern is unique and makes a pretty show.
Love what you teach and teach what you love!
