I received Caesar's Head a little over a year ago. It has bloomed and re-bloomed for me this year. It bloomed the middle of April here, but had a difficult time opening as the temps were a bit cooler. It has not increased from last year so far. The stats:

Here is what the April blooms looked like:

It re-bloomed June 25 and was much more attractive:

have had this daylily for a few years now, it has never reached the 35 inch height or the bud count about ( 10 / 15 ) here, that it is suppose to but the color with the soft pattern is always there, the blooms size goes from 5 /7 inches. I'm always undecided if I should keep it or ship it out and put something else in it's place. forgot to say that I'm in Z5 here and I never get the bud count from a southern hybridized daylily either.
