I purchased Lillian's Vapor Trail this past fall, so this is my first time to see it in bloom. I love the flower, but am disappointed that the stems seem too thin to support the large flower--especially if it rains! Just wondering if others who have this daylily have experienced the same problem?

Mine, also new last fall, has held the blooms up ok, although the scapes are not as tall as they likely will be once the plant settles in a bit more. I have seen this issue on other UFs, though. Some I stake for just that reason. This year the blooms of LVT have varied in width from fairly narrow to more like the UF in the pictures.

This was the 3rd year for it here. I have had no problems so far, and it has gone thru some heavy winds

Mine is in its third year and I have 2 scapes that hold it up and two that lean. Of course the ones that lean are also the ones closest to where I dug a piece out for a sale.

Maybe Fred can weigh in as he is the hybridizer.
