I've had Wineberry Candy since 2009. It's one of my shorter daylilies and in its previous location, it was overshadowed by taller daylilies. I moved it about 5 weeks ago in hopes of it having a chance to perform better. It is a pretty bloom and it usually has good bud count for me.

Wineberry Candy performs very well in my zone 3 garden. It has increased nicely since I first obtained it, has lots of pretty blooms and takes some shade. It's one of the earliest to bloom for me and blooms for a long time. I would definately recommend this Daylily.

Wineberry Candy is new to my garden this year and I love it ! It is consistent and a non stop bloomer. It is also pod and pollen fertile and has added 2 additional fans this season. I recommend it ! Zone 8

This is the 4th year for Wineberry Candy in my garden. It is a front of the bed plant which has clumped up nicely from a double fan. It has consistent color of blooms with a pretty edging. It blooms early to mid season for me. It is a keeper for my garden.
update 2017: WC starts blooming July 20, bud count of 16 with 4 way branching, scapes 26", more than registered. It puts on quite a show

Wineberry Candy is new to my garden and hasn't bloomed yet. The plant looks healthy and a lot of scapes and buds. Will report more after it blooms

Wineberry Candy is a good performer in zone 6b south central Kentucky. I have moved it, divided it and it has still grown and performed beautifully. Blooms are consistent opening perfectly every time.

I have had Wineberry Candy in my garden for over a year, and it has not done very well so far. It sent up a scape and a puny bloom soon after planting but has done nothing but decline since. It is still hanging in there, and I hope to see a much stronger plant next year. No bloom, and no rebloom and no increase.

Wineberry Candy does well for me. Although I should move it into more sun. Very lovely blooms. I crossed Blazing Lamp Sticks x Wineberry Candy. Here is a first year blooms in 2017. The second pic is showing the scape (not the bloom).
