In my limited experience, this cultivar has had problems with not opening properly or having deformed flowers.

I've only had Fiji for a few years. I think it's a gorgeous daylily and I'll keep it but so far it hasn't been a strong performer.

The bud count has been low, total of 6 blooms on 2 scapes last year One bloom was great, Hurray! two were nice and the others were "flat" and very disapointing. This year there's 7 blooms total on 2 scapes. Hopefully these will have a higher percentage of great blooms.

I bought 2 fans that were big and very healthy but they haven't multiplied.

I've had Fiji since 2013. The flowers can hang sometimes but it hasn't been a major issue for me. However, last year it did not bloom. I assumed it was because of the drought. But this year we've had more rain than is typical and Fiji just doesn't look good (small fans) and has no scapes. I'm beginning to think it just isn't a good fit for my climate.

It is pod fertile so I have two seedlings from Fiji with scapes that are much healthier looking.
