|One of my very first daylilies... Bought it spring of 2011 and it's been happily growing under the shade of a mulberry tree ever since. I planted 25 single fans (I know, right? 25?- but that's another story). I have treated them much like folks treat Stella De Oro, plant them and leave them. I lost the fans closest to the fence and deepest under the tree, but the ones on the eastern edge are clumped up, so I still have at least 25 fans in some tidy clumps. I was actually thinking of dividing them this year, but I have put it off.
A lovely smaller flower, Chorus Line is fragrant, a good bloomer in partial shade and does well on little care. I have watered them infrequently, never fertilize and they have over-wintered well in my zone. They wear whatever leaf mulch finds them- and I uncover them in the spring. Though susceptible to rust, I haven't seen it- my zone protects me for now... I don't have a picture of them on the lap top, but I might have a spring clump shot on the tablet...

|Chorus Line is a long time favourite, since I ordered it in 1994 from Daylily Discounter through Crescent Nursery in Ontario.My friend and I shared this plant, and while hers is in the shade, mine is in full sun - both of them have outdone themselves, and provided others with offshoots.
I love the way the sepals frame and support the petals. This photo shows the rich substance of the sepals. Earlier in the day, in full sun, there is an orange tone to the blossoms.
Towards the end of the day, a rosy pink blush enhances the glow of the bloom.
Flaring white ribs accentuate the curve of the petals.
Although the blossoms are small, they have a rich texture and fragrance, that make them a joy to have in the garden.

|One of my very first daylilies too. It has multiplied over the years & I have a nice clump of it. Can't say it is a fast multiplier because I've had it about 15 years, but that is a good think in my eyes, I like not having to divide. It blooms quite well, although that may be because it is such a nice sized clump. I like the color & it does quite well in a more neglected area of my garden where I rarely water or fertilize.|

|Pure joy in the garden. It was also one of my first dozen daylilies, probably from Daylily Discounters or Oakes. It multiplies well, never looks tired, and I wouldn't be without it.|

|I have had Chorus Line for five years and do not think I have gotten 5 blooms from it. As with everything in my garden it either does exceptional or nothing. I have taken to digging up the daylilies that have done nothing, putting them in huge pots, optimal, water, soil and location. I am giving them a chance to improve, so far it has not helped Chorus Line. I do not think it can take the heat here. I noticed that everyone who said it does well was in a cooler climate. May joy surround you!
I prefer to walk in the light, I prefer a world where people want to be kind and bless each other, I prefer a God who loves and shares so much that he gave up his only Son for me. I prefer to choose the God of Abraham. Let there be peace and let it begin with me.

|This daylily has been in my garden for years it likes my northern climate. The increase is moderate looks healthy with sturdy scapes it has reliable pretty blooms.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!
