|I really like its dark red color but the flowers substance cannot hold up to the heat and will melt by early afternoon. It is not pod fertile for me. I am not sure if it is pollen fertile because I have not tried to pollinate its pollen with other daylilies due to its weak petal substance. It has alot of buds on the scape and many buds will bloom at the same time.

I love this one. It was planted in '15 so I have only seen blooms this growing season but it is tall reaching the registered height of 36 inches and maybe even taller with the 5.5 inch blooms. It looks like velvet and holds up well in wet weather. All blooms are consistent in form and color. Although I did not get the registered branching, I did have blooms over a long stretch. I expect a better show next season. This is a keeper for me for sure.
