I am still looking forward to seeing my first bloom on this plant. I planted it back at the end of March 2016, it developed one small scape, but I show nothing ever became of it (no photos). So no report so far, but am looking forward to 2017.

I grew this a few years ago in my search for the perfect yellow. The color started off yellow enough, with great form, and a good bud count. Unfortunately by afternoon the color had bleached out. I don't remember a problem with the substance of the petals being affected by the sun just the color. They say there are lots of yellow daylilies in the daylily world, but a non fading yellow is not as easy to find as it would first appear. America's Most Wanted in not one of them......Maryl
