Received and planted from Wilds in March 2015. Here is a photo of the order I received, you can see Irish Envy on the far left.

I divided this plant just recently to share in a trade with another member here. The clump had over fifty fans already. It has truely been an outstanding plant in my garden, lots of blooms and it blooms over a long period.
This was the clump last year:

Here is a photo of the blooms, really beautiful blooms with good texture.

This was one of the top plants in my garden last year, and should be even better this year.

I've had Irish Envy for quite a few years now. I believe I got it from Wilds also.

In my zone it does not multiply very much at all; perhaps because it is an evergreen. I don't believe it reaches the register height either. Bloom size probably does get to registered size. Never has re-bloomed for me either; again, probably because of my zone.

But I will never get rid of it. It is a beautiful DL. I love the green throat.

I picked up Irish Envy from Gibbs Gardens two years ago. It has multiplied from three fans to nine and it reblooms for me. It is one of my favorite yellows. It will always have a place in my garden as it is beautiful.

Just adding some info to my previous post about Irish Envy.
I pulled 26 dead scapes this morning (no blooms left on them) There are also rebloom scapes left on the plant but no blooms left. The rebloom scapes did not want to turn loose yet, still some green left in them. Of those 26 scapes they displayed two way branching with an average of 8 buds per scape with an average height of 26 inches. I expect this plant to rebloom again before fall.
