|I got Condilla around 2005 when a few neighbors and I went to each others houses and started digging and dividing all kinds of plants. So I did not know what daylily this was until about 2011 when I asked the local official AHS daylily display garden owners. Condilla has a uniqueness that lends itself to be identified easily.
Condilla has sat underneath the oak tree for 10 years and just keeps multiplying and blooming. It is very rust resistant. Blooms are just above the foliage and the yellow gold color is sometimes hard to capture on a camera.
Condilla blooms between late June to mid-late July in my zone 6b garden. It's an oldie but goodie!

|I sound like a broken record with many of these - hardy here in zone 4, no winter mulch, had it for years The flowers are very consistent. I don't believe it has ever singled here either, unlike some doubles.|

|I got Condilla from my Daylily buddy Val. We live about 5 miles apart. Hers is beautiful, sends up several scapes and blooms at a good height. Mine I think last year I had 3 blooms and they were low in the foliage. I felt I was making progress the color of Codilla is so rich. Will keep and work towards more improvement.

|I've had Condilla for many years. I have never seen it bloom as a single. Very hardy here in my Zone 5 garden. The only knock on it is that it is a pain to divide. It appears that all of the fans come from a single crown.

I appreciate observations on things that don't get mentioned often. I have at least one plant that is like that...hard to divide. I hate having to cut through the roots of a plant, but that is the only way on some that just refuse to divide.
