Since my image is posted, all I can say is that Grace and Grandeur is a consistent performer. The pictures taken this year look like that picture. On hotter days it is more creamy yellow than ivory. This one will always have a place in my garden of over 500 daylilies. It is hardy and is not in the best spot of the garden. I guess that is why I keep it, it keeps rewarding me in spite of the poor conditions in which it is growing.

I am loving Grace and Grandeur. It is just a nice flowering plant. This is my second year. It started blooming about 10 days ago and I have had several scapes blooming.

The scapes aren't tall, but are tall enough that the flowers bloom above the fans. The colors are always pretty and even look half way decent at the end of the day.
