God Save the Queen is one of the best performing daylilies I have. It is very consistent , big blooms hold their color all day, even in the rain. Extremely pod fertile and pollen fertile, very hardy in Zone 6b. I personally feel that this is the very best one Mort Morss has hybridized. I grow around 250 different cultivars and I put this one in the top 10, just outstanding in every way.

It's a star in my garden, too. Pod and pollen fertile, a rapid increaser, never a bad bloom.

Glad to hear the positive reports as I added three fans this summer....two from Marietta Daylily Gardens and one from a great seller on ebay. I'm hoping for a good show this spring.

It is a good performer for me as well, but a difficult pod setter. It only likes certain pollens.

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN is very vigorous here, although I haven't seen much in the way of teeth and I haven't really used it in making crosses. It is a reliable bloomer each year, which I certainly can't say for so many of my daylilies.

Great Plant!!! Easily pod and pollen fertile. I have numerous keeper seedlings out of this flower. You often hear that you should buy the "best". This is a great one, that is a little older, so the price is not bad.
