Mississippi Man has been in my garden several years. I think it is one of those tender evergreens, it gains a few fans, then loses them. Beautiful clear pink, large flowers, reaches the height expected. I get about half the bud count stated, but that is enough for me. Last year it was down to 1 fan, that single fan bloomed 3 times last year though. This year it is back to 3 fans, but did not rebloom at all.

Oh, this is a gorgeous daylily! I wonder if I'm far enough south of Bowling Green to get it to pull through, @alilyfan.

I mean, I'm in Zone 7b...and I've never lost a daylily other than to summer rot. I get that a harsh winter may be too much...but for this beauty I'll take a gamble.
Hardy hibiscus are a hobby, but daylilies are an obsession.

This is one that did not survive in my northern garden. I did not see one bloom before it disappeared. Far too tender for zone 4
