I love this daylily. In my garden, it grows a little taller at about 28 inches, with blooms being the registered 6 inches. It makes a beautiful clump with showy yellow, slightly golden blooms. It multiplies at a decent rate, and reliably reblooms every year in my garden. In addition, since the reblooms come when the weather is hot and humid, the reblooms tend to be quite toothy, as some of my database images show. It appears to produce toothy offspring as well. Pod and pollen fertile; holds its color and form even on hot days.

In my opinion, Regina is spot on with her comments. I love how it holds its color on the hottest of days. I do wish that it would increase at a faster rate. However, it probably increases at an average rate. I'm just hoping for a large clump to showcase this golden beauty, sooner than later.
