Would you keep this? It's a 7" flower. I could toss or give it one more year to see if BC and BR improve. I think it had an instant rebloom scape but only bloomed for 27 days total.

I think it's rather pretty, but it all depends on a person's tastes, doesn't it? I've seen some very expensive daylilies that I wouldn't pay 2 cents for, or even want if someone gave them to me for free Smiling

I don't think the question should be would we keep it, it should be "do you like it, and does it fit in your color scheme/style of garden?"

Personally i like the spider style of the flower. Im not too fond of pink flowers though, most of my plants are in the red, orange, and yellow category. But that is just the color scheme i am partial to.

I might consider keeping it one more year, but this winter I'd be thinking of a good cross that would improve the bud count and branching. If it improves on it's own, you can just make it a keeper. And if it doesn't, you can retire it and see if one of the seeds comes through with a version of it that isn't so on-the-fence.

Pat I am on the keep it for further evaluation side. I have bought registered plants that barely bloom for a few weeks.
How tall is it? Does it lean ?

While the chevron eyezone is interesting, as well as the big green throat, the color is dull, a bit muddy, and there is no motion in the flower form. The bitone is interesting. I see about 6 buds. Only value as a bridge plant.

Thanks all. I think I'm for tossing it (offering it on Craig's List for cheap).
