|This an extremely beautiful and distinctive daylily in my garden with beautiful foliage and tremendous vigor. Last summer was the first season it bloomed for me, but even then the scapes easily reached their registered height with great branching. It didn't rebloom for me last summer but it had not yet completely settled in. In addition, I podded it heavily and almost every bloom set a large pod packed with fat, healthy seeds. That being said, my plant bloomed out slowly and lasted a total of 31 days during the hottest part of the year. It has returned this spring with huge fans and lots of increase!|

|This is a great plant in every way. I love the pink apricot color, nicely branched tall scapes and the total package. Very hardy in the North, and a standout in the garden.|
