To start off, I am not a fan of red daylilies....that being said. Prairie Wildfire was gifted to me by a good friend. I know it is doing well as she points it out every year. Nice bright blooms, the plant has multiplied well. Lots of blooms. I don't really give it any attention, it is just there. Others have commented on it. Can't tell you anything about stats. I do have pics taken every year but they are not the best, I attached last years pic. Not my favourite but I don't care for reds.

Grown in MI since 2017 where it blooms after Jul 4 on the west edge of Lake Huron. Definitely not a "flat" flower. Does not rebloom at my location. No irrigation, no fertilizer, fertile, taller than registered height for me ~30"
