I've had BLUE BEETLE since the fall of 2010 I believe. It was the first expensive daylily that I ever purchased and I was super paranoid about how it would do over the winter. Since then it has reliably bloomed, occasionally rebloomed, and puts up at least a new fan every year. This year I did not get rebloom as we had a pretty dry summer and I was dealing with sprinkler problems so it went dormant about August 1st. It did bloom on 5 scapes though. I bought the plant mostly because I love the look of it as a double, and it has never doubled for me. I will sometimes get extra petaloid tissue but never anything close to a full double. Luckily it is absolutely gorgeous as a single. The edge in particular if you can get close to the bloom, the colors can be phenomenal.
It is reliably pod fertile though it does seem to rarely produce viable pollen for me. I have some frozen, and it is fertile, but I would say there is useable pollen on maybe 20% of the blooms. Not a particularly rust resistant variety from what I have seen but it is extremely hardy having easily survived temps in the range of -10 - -20˚F with little snow cover and no mulch. It is only listed as the parent of one plant - Gossards 2013 intro BABY'S GOT BLUE EYES - which I have but has yet to bloom!
All told, I adore BLUE BEETLE and despite having spent more on a single fan that I had on any entire order of plants up to that point, I could not be happier with it.
