As a comment about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Victorian Lace')
I had always wanted Victorian Lace, so when I finally bought it I was so excited! Having looked at all the lovely pictures in the database, I had high hopes. Unfortunately, it has never performed well for me. I have it in full sun, very well amended soil, mulch (not too close to the crown), and lots of water. In my zone 5b garden it remains the same two fans I originally bought (very reputable vender) with unimpressive blooms.
