Inherited Wealth is a wonderful Daylily with very consistent blooms. Inherited Wealth is very hardy in zone 6b southern Kentucky. I love that the ruffles are always perfect and the blooms always open perfectly without hanging up.

I have been growing Inherited Wealth for many years here in zone 5. I didn't readily recall that it is an Evergreen, yet it does exceptionally well here in Wisconsin. It is always a reliable bloomer and performer, one of my best garden plants. It is unwilling to set pods for me and I wish it were a little taller, but it will always have a place in my garden.

Inherited Wealth was given to me in 2009 as a freebie. The first few years I just wasn't impressed with it because it seemed like every bloom had something wrong with it. But it has settled in nicely now and has increased well enough that I really should divide it this year.

Branching is 4-way as stated in the database, but I am unsure of bud count. I have not noticed rust, but really can't remember.

I like the color variations on IW. Sometimes has a pinkish-orange tint. It blooms well above the foliage and that is something I find desirable.

I have had Inherited Wealth for a long time. Grows beautifully here in Wisconsin zone 5a. I transplanted it, after bloom, in 2014 and it looked very good already in 2015. Can't wait to see it this year Hurray! I did get seeds from it last year. Probably my favorite "ruffled edge" in my collection of over 200 daylilies.

I've had Inherited Wealth since at least 2011. This is one daylily that does not do well in a pot when winters are severe. It has yet to recover from our very cold 2013/14 winter. In 2014 & 2015 I only had a handful of blooms despite plenty of TLC. My goal for 2016 is to find a spot in the ground to plant it. I'm hoping it will do much better once it's out of the pot.
