This daylily grows in my SE Gulf Coast Texas and it is not dormant here. It reblooms every year. Multiplies quite well. Wonderful daylily to start a new gardener for his/her beds. Thumbs up

I was getting pretty excited about finding a new plant that has good rust resistance, especially after reading that it does do well along the Texas Gulf Coast (zone 8b). Then I noticed the small bloom size. I guess that is the only reason it has never made my "Want List" .

As smaller daylilies gain popularity, this is one to get for that miniature garden.
Not a teeny-tiny one at 2.75" bloom and mid 20s for height but still fits the grouping.
Preforms well and forms a nice clump. Distinctive eye zone.

Love what you teach and teach what you love!

Just one piece of information about 'Patchwork Puzzle'. Although the AHS registration database indicates it is a tetraploid none of the registered daylilies with it as a parent are registered as tetraploids. They are all registered as diploids. 'Patchwork Puzzle' is probably a diploid accidentally incorrectly registered as a tetraploid.

I grew this great miniature from the late 90's until this past summer when I had to make some hard choices about cutting back. I always thought some of Liz's early patterns were way ahead of their time and this was one of them. Unlike some of Liz Salter's dips, this one performed well in the mid-Atlantic where I live. It had a good bud count and the face was intriguing. Great little plant!

Those are lovely photos, even with the small bloom it may have to go on my list. A local grower has it for $5.00.
