As with those who posted before me, the scapes on this daylily are rather weak and do tend to flop (although in 2011 they were quite strong and held well, but many of my plants that year for some reason performed exceptionally) so some staking might be required, or have it growing near other stronger perennials that can help hold up the scapes. Someone once recommended planting it near white daisies, so that's where I have mine growing, next to Crazy Daisy shasta daisies. The color is a deep purple in the morning when it firsts opens but then fades to a lighter maroon purple with a purple eye zone and white midribs. It has increased well for me and mine is due for dividing. It, however, dislikes being moved and may pout for a year or two before returning to top performance, such as mine did when I moved in 2013. It sulked that year, did a little better last year, and was back to normal this year. So don't be surprised if it doesn't do much the first year, it just likes to put down its roots first before showing off its stuff.
