| Tranquil Waters is a gorgeous purple. It grows taller than the 29" it is registered at here in southern Kentucky, closer to 36". It is fertile both ways, I have seedlings ready to go in the ground that I look forward to see blooming next Spring. Tranquil Waters is an average increaser, the blooms are just beautiful and rarely hang up. I recommend it .|

|I haven't had Tranquil Waters too long, I think 3 years and it does well in my climate. It is not a fast increaser. Scapes are very tall here. This year I think scapes are over 40". I usually have fairly good bud count but this year bud count appears to be low as is on a lot of my other flowers. The plant is fertile both ways. I have not yet grown out any seedlings from it but I really should try. It has a lovely flower that opens up nicely and does well in hot weather.|

|I love Tranquil Waters too. Scapes are about 38 inches here. Not one bloom has hung up for me this Spring. Bud count is not high, but in the normal range. It is rather slow to increase but worth it. I look forward to seeing this one every year. I have grown it about 5 yrs. I have made some crosses with it just a couple days ago, hoping for some seed pods.|

|That's quite a range of color. @tgarden711 what time did you take that picture? Does yours fade to pink-lav later in the day?|

I take most of my pictures early morning before the sun falls on the daylilies. Most all of them fade in the hot afternoon sun. Tranquil Waters is no exception. This is a picture of it yesterday morning.
