No drama here, unless you are trying to buy Rich in color, tall and elegant, this is one great daylily. Hardy in northern Illinois, and beautiful in a clump...another Davi masterpiece.

I should see my first ever kids from her bloom this summer...and I can't wait!

Another of my favorites. This one is so good that when you see it in bloom you will be screaming "yes! Yes! YES!!!," lol!

I agree with everything Steve said above. MAMA DRAMA is extremely vigorous and multiplies fast even after loading it down with pods. Scapes are beautifully branched, instant rebloom is reliable, foliage is impeccable and the flowers themselves are the most delicious, velvety raspberry red color, the kind that you would want to eat for dessert. Lightly fragrant too.

I have this one growing next to WIGGLY PIGGLY and it is one of my favorite daylily combinations.

Hopefully you won't have long to wait, Steve. I got my order from Davi today -- a beautiful DF of GLASS CEILING, 4F of RAMBUNCTIOUS ROSIE, and TF of PLUMCAKE PATTY as a gift! Hurray!

I'll have to get MAMA DRAMA next time -- it looks fabulous, and hopefully it won't be totally sold out by then!

Yes it will D'Oh!

To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan and not quite enough time.
