|I just got this daylily last year, and it was from a source other than Judy Davisson, since she was sold out. I have to say it is a hardy thing .... it arrived with no foliage and sparse roots, but wow did it start growing fast and put out several fans. I really wasn't concerned when I saw it because I knew the source was dependable, but I didn't expect the kind of growth that it produced.
I took the photo below in Judy's garden, it puts on a spectacular show. Highly recommended.

|A fabulous daylily, and a fabulous parent! I am a watermark lover (shock) and this one is perfect!
Interesting enough, when I crossed it with VICTORIA JOSEPHINE, I expected watermarks galore, but got this seedling instead. I checked the plant marker twice...lol. Maybe the watermark is so big it covered the entire face...lol. Makes me want to use ABBY all the more!

|This is another of Judy's beautiful daylilies. I agree with Kathy that it is hardy and vigorous. It has an unusual quirk of needing to settle in for a season or two before showing its true colors. Mine looked washed out for first two seasons and then suddenly morphed into the gorgeous flower you see in the photos above.|

|Added this one to my garden I think it was last year, so it sounds like it will need some time to settle in to my growing conditions. Looking forward to it putting on a show in my garden.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!
