I've had Seminole Wind since 2007. It hasn't multiplied a lot for me, however, it is in a spot where it doesn't get any morning sun...probably gets sun around one in the afternoon at the earliest. I haven't measured it, but, I'm guessing it gets taller than the 23" height for me. Bloom size I believe has to be the 6.5" as registered. I did get seeds from it in 2015. It's a beauty and a keeper.

I just love the color and form of Seminole Wind! The description "pink self with green throat" implies a daylily with a simply look to it. But sometimes that just gives a daylily more elegance. That's how I feel about SW. Sometimes it even appears to have a bitone quality to it, as in the photo Petruske added to this thread.

It obviously must have some quality that the hybridizers like, because it has 163 child plants!

The database says that SW shows susceptibility to rust, but I have not had a problem with it. It has not multiplied well, but as you can see in the picture, it is between a Miss Kim lilac and a St. John's Wort shrub, so it gets a lot of shade. I've had it since 2009 and it is still probably only 4 fans or so. Branching and bud count, maybe 2-way with 10 buds (pure guess).

H. Seminole Wind was a gift plant and has lived in a large pot for ten years. Normally I prefer taller scapes but this flower has delighted me every year with it's pretty color and simple beauty. It badly needs dividing this year. No rust so far.

One of the better Stamile pinks in my garden. A bit taller than registered, though maybe a bit smaller than 6.5". Has multiplied fairly well. To me, a radiant, rich shade of pink. Bud count is middling, typical for a Southern cultivar in the North (maybe 7-10). A keeper for me too.

I crossed SW with Barn Fire (from Solaris Farms). Here are some blooms from the seedlings.
