|Velvet Eyes is not a real fast grower in my zone but its uniqueness is why I like it. I have no other reds with such a dark eyezone. During drought, which we are currently having, flowers tend to be smaller but it usually is pretty true to its stats. It is fertile both ways and does well in hot sun.

|This is the first year for Velvet Eyes in my Garden and it adapted well. Look forward to growth of this beautiful cultivar.

|I bought Velvet Eyes in my order from Fairyscape Daylilies in mid-June. Since they are not far from me, I was able to pick up my order, and basically it went from their garden to mine. It did not look back and is sending up scapes. All three fans are sending up a scape. It has been very dry and hot here, but I have kept my newly acquired daylilies well watered. I will update this thread when it blooms for me.|

|I have had Velvet Eyes for several years. Not a fast multiplier, but blooms well, & has rebloomed here.|

|Growth here was anemic. Perhaps not a fast multiplier in general, but I concluded it didn't like this climate.|
