I'm intrigued with the pictures of Wild Horses. What is the opinion of my NGA Friends?

Paul,

I tried to grow it in my Zone 5 garden in Upstate NY and it struggled.

In the sandy soil of my TX garden it hangs on and blooms but not great. Probably needs more light than I can give it. Makes nicely patterned kids
Life is better at the lake.

Zone 4, it died.
Wild Horses was one of 3 from the cross of Moonlit Masquerade X Tet. Cleopatra introduced by Trimmer.
Wild Horses, Volusian Spider and Egyptian Queen. I'd have to dig out my old catalogs to see but I believe Egyptian Queen was suppose to be the hardiest of the 3. Just checked the kids of Egyptian Queen and Barry Matthie has some registered. He's in Ontario, Canada.

I love the Wild Horses. In fact, they are the reason I have daylilies. When I saw them, I was hooked. I'm in zone 7 and they have done well here.

Be careful who you buy from. Some of the first I bought turned out to not be Wild Horses. I'd also suggest you not buy single fans. They don't seem to do as well as multiple fans planted together.

Wild Horses daylily has done very well in my zone 6 garden without any type of protection. It is my one of my favorite daylily. It has great substance and still looks good at the end of a 90F+ day. I highly recommend this daylily. If you have a protected spot, it may do well for you too.
