One of the great daylilies I grow, and I grow a lot. Beautifully formed and the mainstay of all things watermarked that I breed. The parent of VICTORIA JOSEPHINE. I will always have this plant.

One of my favorites. Started with a double fan in spring of 2014, and now I have a clump of at least 6 huge fans. Stayed in bloom almost 6 weeks this summer. Color is impeccable and the huge watermark can be seen from across the garden. I used it in a lot of crosses this summer.

High Water Mark has a wonderful watermark which reminds me of some of the Munson daylilies that are in my garden. HWM is one more keeper that will always be in my garden as it is truly beautiful. Lovey dubby
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

HIGH WATER MARK is one of my favorite daylilies - does real well here solid Zone 4. I have made a lot of crosses with it (and its grandkids, through a couple of Steve's intros) and have some very nice seedlings coming along. Great genes!

I've only had my plant for a few months now, and it bloomed for the first time in our intense summer heat so the blooms were quite pastel -- but then it cooled down for about a week, and I got a bloom with a little more color.



I really love the look of its blooms, even the very pastel ones!

This is a beautiful daylily that thrives in Z5a Michigan. More and more I like large watermarks, and "High Water Mark" has a big chalky white one that catches the attention of me and visitors alike. I've shared this one with family and friends, and divisions establish quickly. It's well worth the bargain price Judy now has it listed for.
