This is a very lovely flower but I don't think it likes my climate very much. I have had it for 7 years and have never had to divide it yet. Mine grows a bit taller than its registered height of 26". Bud count is not all that great in my garden, maybe l0 buds.

I bought it two years ago. It is hardy in my zone 4 conditions with no apparent problems about growing after winter. It did not bloom its first full year here. I hope to see flowers this summer.

This indeed is a very beautiful flower in terms of form and color. Very nice blend of peach, orange and gold tones. Full round form and heavy ruffles with very good substance. I do agree that it does not multiply much in my Zone 6 area as well. As a matter of fact, mine got a bit crowded out by other daylilies and I almost lost the plant last spring. I relocated it to another spot and it is making a slow come back this year,
