I love this daylily!!! Stats are pretty true in my garden and it does rebloom here in the north. It is both pollen and pod fertile for me. Some days the blooms are almost white while other days they tend to be a light lemon yellow. I hope this one will do well for me in zone 4 when I take it with me next spring after I move north. Increase is a bit on the slow side here but where I have it planted it gets half a day shade. I believe it would probably do much better in full sun.

President Ronald Reagan (Smith-FR, 2006) has been a disappointment. Even though it is southern-bred, it has failed to thrive here on the Louisiana gulf coast. Poor growth, short scapes, and low bud count, it continues to dwindle.

I also find President Ronald Reagan disappointing. Here I have never seen it as being even near-white. It is plainly a yellow in my location.

Wow, can't believe the negative comments on this one. It must like my soil and climate.
