Sue, thank you for writing this comment! Seeing you say that it reblooms reliably in the north, too, was the final straw. A nursery here in MI just put all of their daylilies on a 50% off sale and I had been telling myself 'no, save your money now and just get it next year when you know you'll have blooms'....but after reading your note about it reblooming, I went up to the nursery today and ONE of their six HAI's left had a rebloom scape on it. I walked around holding it to make sure no one accidentally picked it out of my garden cart thinking it was a 'go-back' plant or something.
I'm so excited to own it (and have a perfectly valid excuse for getting it now rather than next year!)
