|My most prolific daylily. I planted five double fans in 2011 or 2012. I lost one plant two years after planting. I transplanted the smallest clump to a new location last fall and divided a clump this spring. It yielded a dozen fans...
The other two clumps are thick and substantial- both around 13-14 fans.
Thick foliage, strong scapes, good fragrance. The flowers have good substance and form, opening cleanly with its pretty ruffles. I have not used it for hybridizing yet, so I cannot comment upon fertility. I haven't taken scape/bud count records prior so I will have more info this summer. The color in the photos is pretty true to life with those lovely white ribs.
I took this a few days ago- it's been posted on another thread...
This is one that will always have a home in my garden.
A bloom from last summer- not the best pic

|I've grown this Daylily for about 5 years. It's foliage is thick and stays nice and green during the hot summer days. The blooms are well spaced and always open beautifully, even on cool mornings. The bud count is not high on this one, but it produces enough scapes to put on a nice display for a month or so, and will occasionally have poly blooms.
I could only find pictures from 2015. This cultivar does hold up well to rain, as you can see by my picture.
I've never tried breeding with this Daylily, so have nothing to report on fertility.
