Capacity For Wonder was a passalong plant and one of the best ever received with enough fans to make two plants, and both just took off. It produces many beautiful polychrome flowers with heavy substance over a long period of time. Both plants were moved last year, so this year the flowering wasn't as much, but I think that is just the resettling period some plants go through after a move, and I expect 2018 will see a big increase in flower production. From what I have read about Hanson's daylilies, his plants are usually strong and vigorous with large scapes and this one is definitely that. It is a real winner for us.
