Perhaps my comment is reflective of tissue culture, as not all daylilies do well tissue-cultured. Would love to find a piece of this plant that has come from division only to see whether it would be the same. That said, my plants of Just Plum Happy were the worst daylilies I've ever owned. They were the first to come down with leaf streak every year and spread it around. Their color melts in hot sun. Their color melts in high humidity. Their color fades by afternoon. Probably more negatives to add, but 'nuff said.
Positives: Reblooms all season, so as to prolong the misery.

My experience with 'Just Plum Happy' has been similar to that of Pattyw5. I tried hiding the plant behind planyd with nicer foliage, but the flowers are not held much above the foliage, so that strategy was a failure. Perhaps I should just get rid of them!
