|This is one of my won't-be-without DLs. It blooms reliably and increases well. I've had it in
three different gardens!
I've already posted a photo from my garden.

|This was one of my original purchases when I first started collecting daylilies . It is a very hardy, average increasing daylily ....blooms are of a consistant size and color year after year .It has an orange yellow throat which is a nice change from the predominent green throat on most daylilies . I have loved this daylily since I got it and will continue to always grow it in my zone 6a gardens .
Spent most of my time in the garden the rest of it I've wasted

|I received this Daylily in 2009 as a gift from a friend who told me it was the first Daylily she ever purchased. In my garden it was slow to increase and took a couple years to establish reliable beautiful blooms. It has now grown into a lovely clump which I moved and divided this fall. I hope it will not be pouting when bloom season starts.|

|I have had this daylily since 2003 and it always puts on a great show. I moved it to my northern garden location last summer which is a zone 4, so we will see how it does there. Always did wonderful in zone 5. I never ever bothered to take stats on it but I would say by the way it bloomed that it exceeded its registered stats. It is also a fairly good increaser. I could never get a pod to form on it but once in a while the bees set a pod on it for me.

|One of my original purchases as well. Performs well in sun or shade, doesn't fade even in full sun. It's one of those stellar performers in the garden.|

|I've had 'Real Wind' here in Zone 4 for many years, it has always done reasonably well although I suspect it would prefer a little more TLC than it gets to do really well, but it always flowers.|

|Real Wind has been a great performer in my zone 6a garden for over seventeen years. This year is no exception. What I particularly like about Real Wind is it blooms late mid season and persists well after most of my other daylilies have quit. It has a beautiful bloom; I agree with the gold throat comment made by signet. It is a great clump former sending up many 27 inch scapes held well above the foliage. Its branching and bud count are not great by today's standards. Most of my scapes had two-way branching with an average bud count of 7.
