One of the most unusual has a dusky look to it that no other dayliliy I own does. Very pretty! Medium growth rate, reliable bloomer. I have had it in my garden 7-8 years and plan on keeping it.
Love what you teach and teach what you love!

Mine always looks like the first picture. It is one that is loaded with buds and blooms over a long time. Increase is moderate. I get occasional rebloom with this one. I am in zone 5 and it does well. I sought this one out for its bud count. I've had mine for 6 years and had to divide it last year and kept two fans and now I have 4 fans. It did not seem to be bother by being divided as the scapes reached their registered height.

I had this one several years, it did well. Moderate increase rate, lovely blooms in that unusual color, bud counts for me more like 15 to 20, but good for me. A couple of years ago it got crown rot and died. A friend gave me a nice start, I planted it un a different area last fall, it bloomed nicely this spring, then died. Apparently does not like me, but i may give it another try, i like it that well
