Please join in, if you own this plant! We would love to know more! I award an acorn for performance information posted to this thread.

I received three fans from the lily auction this spring. All three bloomed last month, and they were beautiful. I noticed another scape this morning....think I'm having a rebloom within a couple of weeks. I have it next to Tal of Gascone but I like it better. The a Dark Side is a keeper for me.

Judy - I have been listing "rebloomers" as "possible re-bloom" on these Daylily of the Day features, because some cultivars don't always rebloom in all zones. I understand that the hybridizer lists it as a rebloomer in their garden. The info is mainly to let perspective owners know what is possible given all factors taken into consideration. Smiling
