|I got Hakuna Matata in 2014 from a lady who sold daylilies out of her garden, and they were not skimpy when digging out the fans! I probably got between 8-10 fans for $15, so it is hard for me to tell how much it has multiplied in the last two years. Plus I have given some away and it is still a nice sized clump. I kept eyeing it from across her garden because it was early July and it was just getting going. Well for me, that is almost a late bloomer, so I just had to have it. I like the green throat against the lavender petals, too.
HM has wonderful 5 to 6-way branching and for me it gets about 25-30 buds. I noticed that AHS says 40-45 buds, but I don't believe it has done that for me yet.
In 2015, it bloomed from 7/5 to 7/26, a full three weeks. This year it started blooming 6/27 and kept going until 7/20. I have not had any rebloom on it.
The scapes are sturdy and hold up the branching well, which is good because it really does get at least 4 feet tall or taller.
I was able to set pods on it pretty easily; however, the seeds are still in the fridge.

|Great plant, it has all the attributes that it is registered with. Very fertile as a pod parent. Blooms late when many things are already done in my zone 5. A favorite.|

|just got home today from work and finally got on the computer, as with a lot of the day lilies that have come up as myself having it I just got it this year. besides being bred in Minn. which makes it real hardy it is a late bloomer which I like, but one of the real reasons was the name Hakuna Matata which as every one knows is the Walt Disney movie The Lion King. I took my youngest to that movie and hearing that name brought back fond memories of a long time ago when she was still young so I had to get it.|
