Vigorous and very well budded. Blooms later in the season. Big--both blooms and plant size. The size for me is a bit of a downside, as it is a space hog. But it's a radiant blossom, worthy of its HM.

This is a very vigorous plant in my zone 5. Extremely Pod fertile, and passes on great characteristics to it's "offspring". (40 children)

I just acquired this plant in the fall. With the great reviews, I can't wait to see it this year. I also planted it in an area where there is a lot of room for it to grow, because I heard that it was a space eater.

Grew this one for many years.....had one of the biggest root systems and fan size imaginable....I sold it by the double fan because I couldn't get 3 fans in any box and it cost me an arm and a leg for shipping! Fabulous daylily. Perfectly formed flowers and wonderful scape. Curt had a real hybridizing gem with this one!

WSM likes my zone 4 garden it has been here for years. Well deserved the Honorable Mention award it recieved. This one has sturdy scapes with beautiful blooms. I have not added a picture to the database, sometime I will have to look thru my photo files or take another one and add mine.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!

I'm in zone 9a and WSM has done very well here.
Blooms almost constantly, increases, and sets pods readily.
A good plant.

WSM is a fabulous plant. I have grown it for 2 seasons with it blooming late, Aug 26 until frost. Cool nights do not affect this plant. It grew to 36" in 2017 {registered at 41"}, bud count of 16 with 4 way branching. A good show late in the season.
