Fear Not is a bright, cheery daylily. I think I appreciate it more now than I did when I first got it, because I wasn't really into watermarks at first. Last year mine was a potted plant for its bloom season, which I think affected its bloom count, as did getting it after it had already had some blooms. As it was, I only had 4 blooms out of it that wrapped up blooming on 7/25/15. The red seems to be pretty sunfast and true to color in the sense that it didn't change color with the blooms. I'll have to verify this in the 2016 season once I've had more blooms to look at, though.

The budcount on mine wasn't as high (based on bud scars) as the database suggests and it didn't have 4 branches, either; but one scape makes for a poor evaluation of the flower.

The color in the pictures is pretty spot-on, I would say, and it does grow up here in the northern states. I did not experience any rebloom with this flower in my garden (I planted it after it bloomed out).

I can not give a evaluation of this one since I just put it in the ground last year. I do grow in the neighborhood of 40 of her offerings and I have not been disappointed with one of them yet , she does give a very honest description of what she has seen from it and what it might do farther south in the warmer area's of the country

I planted this one in 2015. This is a pic of a bloom on a 2 year old plant. I find it an excellent garden plant, not tall at 25" for me but a stand out for color and always consistent in color, shape and height above foliage. A modest increaser. Bud count is 9 with 2 way branching this year here. I like it.
