I don't have this one, but just wanted to comment that I find this particular color combo to a little difficult to match up and pair together with other dl and plants, other colors. It just seems to be a third wheel sometimes. But then I think that sometimes about the pastel pinks and those pink/purple eye combos too.

It's vigorous, but I haven't grown it long enough to discuss its merits.

I've only had it one year and can't really say much about the performance in my garden because it hasn't established yet. It was late when I planted it, into October (zone 5b), but it survived an extremely cold winter and even bloomed last summer. I have seen it in other peoples gardens and in Bryan Culver's field, there it really stood out! I think they were larger than reported and very robust!

I have it in my garden. Was doing very well 2 years ago, then decided to move it clump and all late in the fall.
Well last year being a great growing year, it sulked and was half the plant than the year before. The colors are fine but , pod and pollen wasn't good as well.

I have had Sun Panda in my garden since '14. It bloomed both summers here and survived the miserable '14/'15 winter so is very hardy. It has added fans both seasons and should be a good sized clump '16 summer. It stands up well to rain and is a stand out from a distance. Blooms are large and it blooms over a lengthy time for me. I love this one and definitely a keeper for me. Sorry for the fuzzy pic. I hope to be able to upload a better one next season.
Update 2017---At 3 years old, I consider this to now be mature. Bloomed from July 26 - Aug 30, reached 30" {less than registered} with a bud count of 20 with 4 way branching. It has increased to a large clump. Pretty amazing in a northern garden. I love this one. As for color, many others have already finished when blooms start on SP.

I see this is a canadian breed daylily, anyone know if any of the Culver daylilies do well down south?
