This one is my kind of daylily, it is so pretty with the large blooms plus watermark and light edges. Mine should be a small clump in the upcoming year as it has been in the garden two years. By the way purchased it from Kulpa, his niece sold on the LA for him.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!

I just got RS this year, so it has not bloomed for me yet. Can't wait to see it next year!

This is an awesome daylily. Flowers are larger and scales are taller in my garden than registered, and color is extremely clear and eye-catching. It is also a bud builder and stays in bloom surprisingly long. It sets plenty of pods. Love this one!

"Regina Sitko, won the R2 Englerth award in 2011.

Thumb of 2016-11-23/TreeClimber/17899e

John Kulpa concentrates mainly on "teeth", and that breeding is in Regina's background. (Mort Morss × Shores of Time) x Megatron. Even John had to admit that it's lack of teeth did not mean it was a discard.

An amazing plant that clumps up quickly and has a very long bloom time. Everyone that sees it growing, wants it.

Some years it has set pods fairly easily for me, but some years it's a struggle. I have not figured out what factor is effecting that, but perhaps it just takes a rest once in a while. It's pollen is always very fertile.

Regina Sitko not only bud builds, but I get quite a bit of instant rebloom. ;)

The fine white edge transmits to it's offspring. This seedling from one of Johns future registrations ("Kathy Rinke") crossed with "Regina Sitko", shows both the white edge and some teeth.
