This was a bonus plant for me, out of California. I planted it in the garden on June 18th 2015, then on Oct. 26th 2015 I moved it to a different spot in the garden. The plant had some rust but has performed decently and multiplied in my garden. The plant did rebloom in my garden.The bud count was low this first blooming year, the branching was not recorded but I feel sure it was three way at most. I do recall being pretty well pleased with this daylily.
The first bloom on this plant was on May 5th 2016:

This plant is now just over 2 years old. I pulled 6 dead scapes from it today. They averaged 25 inches tall and three of them were 3 way branching and 3 of them had two way branching. The averaged bud count per scape was 12. I failed to get a photo of the plant today, but it is reblooming. We just got one inch of rain and the blooms did not stand up to the down pour very well, so the photo is from an earlier date.The plant has multiplied and is now nine fans.
