Julie Newmar was one of the first daylilies I actually bought, most of my plants were pass me downs from my parents or gifts from friends. Then I developed an interest in daylilies and actually started buying a few.
Many of the first plants I bought faded out pretty quickly, and only a couple of them actually thrived. Julie Newmar, had been slow to increase, and being an older daylily it does not have a lot of buds and minimum branching, but still it is a beautiful bloom. It has continued to return and I will keep it as long as it will keep coming back.
