|I have this one and it is a wonderful early bloomer for me. The flowers always open perfect and the colors are so bright and cheerful. I look forward to its blooms every year. Once in awhile it will send up a reblooming scape.

|Interesting that the petal base color is more saturated in cool weather - I would have expected the opposite.
It does look like it opens fairly well in cool weather - or am I wrong?
In honor of iris season, the current image is that of the TB iris 'Busy Being Blue', the first TB iris to bloom in my garden

|It does well here too, multiplies quite well & blooms a long time. I don't think I've ever seen a splotched flower, or bloom that fails to open on it.|

|The plant is reliable here too; the flower always looks good. To critique: the flower is smaller 5" vs 5.75", branching is really poor - 2 way; my bud count is way below the 30 listed; I don't get a long season bloom. I would say one looking for a bright orange flower could make a better choice.|

|I love, love Oktoberfest! It blooms early here in my zone 3 garden, opens beautifully even on cold days and is never blotchy even on a very cool day with lots of dew, unlike many of my other daylilies. It has been a heavy bloomer in my garden and for the first time this year has one scape reblooming. It has increased well and is one of the most complimented and commented on daylilies in my garden.
