Hey Jon,
I have had All Fired Up in my garden for over ten years. It is in the top five best performing daylilies in my garden. I got it as a DF plant---it increased to five fans the next year---ten the next. It looks a bit rough in the spring--but quickly recovers with beautiful medium green foliage. It is moderately resistant to rust, and some years I can hardly find evidence of rust on it. Scapes are strong and 3/4 way branched. Flowers are opened sequentially--so no bunching. Lots of scapes in bloom with reliable rebloom that overlaps the first set of scapes. It has grown the entire time in a 30 gallon plastic pot above ground (which simulates zone 6 conditions here), so it is one of those rare, cold-hardy, EVR's. The flowers have clear color with fairly sharp demarcation between colors. The flowers could be a bit more full---but then, one could go either way with it in crosses. It easily sets pods that actually make good amounts of seed.

I purchased All Fired Up in 2008 and it has multiplied very well over the years. I like that the scapes hold up the blooms, even though I have this planted in partial shade. It has 3-way branching with about 20 buds that bloom well above the foliage. It did have thrips one year and All Fired Up got hit pretty bad. It blooms for about the last two weeks in June in my zone 6b garden.

I purchased this Daylily in 2014, and it bloomed this year. The stats were below what is registered, but I expect that to improve. Three fans when planted, it has doubled already. I really like the bloom, and look forward to seeing more of them. I also had a few seedlings from it that bloomed this year, and one of them looked and performed great in it's first year blooming. I actually purchased the seeds off of the LA, winter of 2013, from Sscape.

This daylily has been in my garden for at least six years, it does very well here in zone 4 once it got established. Getting daylilies established here in northern gardens can take up to three years depending on the cultivar. The plant has formed a nice clump, blooms well with plenty of buds plus the flowers are attractive, overall it is a good plant in my garden.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!

Vickie - Your clump photo is gorgeous!!! I hope mine becomes that beautiful some day! Lovey dubby

I acquired 3 fans of All Fired Up in August 2015 (potted it up) and it was transplanted into a raised bed in October 2015. It bloomed for the first time the beginning of June 2016. I did not keep track of stats this year but hope to do better next year. It has recently produced a new small fan for a total of 4 fans currently.

Blooms June 2016:

The foliage is skinny and skimpy at this time, but I hope to see a lush clump one day in the near future:

"All Fired Up" is another non stop bloomer for me. The intense colors shine brightly in my shadier part of my yard. It's a true show off when planted with a darker blue flower. It is also very prolific for me!
Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.
