Bonanza has been in my garden for over 20 years, one of the first I bought. It has been divided, moved and shared a few times. It grows to be a good sized clump at a moderate speed. It is not fussy about anything here. It grows taller here than registered -to 30". The blooms always look the same one to the other and do not fade in direct sun. The bud count is 10 on 3 way branching. Although it is registered to rebloom, that does not happen here. It is a good garden plant.

Bonanza was one of my 1st daylilies also. I have shared it many times, still have about 6 clumps of it. I have had it rebloom, but not often, and not many blooms on rebloom. Dependable but not impressive bloomer, but does increase quickly

I have had Bonanza for a long time in my front garden. It isn't a big increaser for me but it also has a lot of competition from other plants where it is located. I've never seen a rebloom but Bonanza does bloom for about three weeks from mid July to the beginning of August here ( classic M). I like the cheery pattern and uniformity of the flowers...they always look good. My Bonanza is about the registered height of 24" but I haven't actually measured it. Next summer!

I have Bonanza in my garden too. I have had it for years. I don't have a picture though. I will try next year.
