I love this poly. It has a high poly % and sometimes throws 5x5's. It is registered as having 2 way branching but often does better for me. The fact that it's fertile both ways is also a big plus.

I also love this poly that increases well here in northern KY.
This picture was taken on a cool over cast morning. Color is not usually this bright and fades with heat and sun. Poly percentage is high with some 5x5s. Since blooms are larger and it clumps well, the bud count/branching is no biggie to me as several blooms are usually open in the clump. A keeper in my garden.

Love what you teach and teach what you love!

I really love this daylily, but I think I've only had one poly bloom on it so far. I bought mine from Lisa, above, so I'm sure it will get around to doing its thing eventually! In the meantime, I'm really enjoying it! It is increasing well here, which is great. I can't wait to see more poly blooms!

I also acquired Lillian's Crazy Arms from Lisa in 2016. Here is a bloom from it's FIRST season in the garden. Wow! Just imagine what the future will bring. Hurray!
