One of the sturdiest Daylilies I have. It blooms like crazy, doesn't mind partial shade, and is a fast increaser even in drought.

A trait that I am looking for more of is sturdy scapes, and Moses' Fire definitely has them! Only had it two years and since I got it from a friend, I am unsure about how much it has increased. It blooms from mid-June to mid-July in my zone 6b garden.

It does throw some singles. Got Moses' Fire in 2013 from a friend and at first thought she had given me the wrong daylily. But the singles are pretty too!

I like the blooms above the foliage and it certainly does that. Maybe my judgement is off, but this looks taller than the registered height of 22".

Branching is a nice 3-way and bud count is around 20.

I keep saying I am not into doubles, but there are some that I do like because of all the other qualities mentioned above. Moses' Fire is a great addition to the landscape.

My report will probably sound like a recurring theme or the needle skipping on vinyl... Rolling on the floor laughing

It is unfortunate that a lot of my CVs including Moses Fire were being choked or starved by the neighboring fence line azalea's and other shrubs last year. So, no real report to share. I will however say this, since I have moved into a new home and have a blank slate to work with I am hopeful for the future.

That said, as with all of my CVs I have potted them up in a supped up growing medium with lots of organic materials, a little extra natural fertilizer in the form of compost and pine fines. Most have started a wonderful recovery. But of course the below photo shows some yellowing of the foliage but it is winter here in NW FL and frost has stunted some of these back.

Come on spring!

I got this last year, so it's too soon to tell how it does after this long cold winter. I have heard good things about it up here though, so I am looking forward to seeing how it does

This is a good grower in my garden. It grows a little taller than the registered height and the color is a stand out for me. It is not a floppy double and I like that about this one.

I haven't had Moses' Fire for very long. I bought it in 2020. So far it has been a reliable bloomer. It's too early for me to say much about how it compares to the registration. I can say that I haven't seen it throw a single flower yet. Hopefully I'll have an update in a year or two once the plant has settled in.
