|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).
May all your weeds be wildflowers. ~Author Unknown

|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.|
