This is a wonderful daylily. Although I have it for only 3 years, the fans have grown into a nice small clump. The height is just right for the scapes. THe flowers color is very nice and colorfast. Sometimes they can be splotchy but that maybe due to my weather.

I have had it for several years -it grows well and looks good.
so good I have to keep dividing and sharing it when people see it. I may need to leave it alone for a year and let it build back up as blooms were smaller this past year. No data on fertility as I have not used it but I do remember it setting a bee pod a couple years back.
Love what you teach and teach what you love!
