I added OS this fall. My late-placed order arrived in mid-October and seemed to settle in okay. As a dormant, it put on very little new growth, but the crowns remained of good substance/plump. I'll know more about it next spring.

Ocean Spirit arrived in 2015 and did wonderfully well right from the start. This year it kept right on going, producing lots of flowers and some of them were from late scapes, which was a really nice surprise. It has not reached 40 inches yet, but the scapes are still tall enough for me, probably about 32-34 inches. Looking forward to seeing how it does in its third year--I really like this daylily, form and color.
