I got Bonnie Holley in the spring of 2016, it bloomed last year, better than I had hoped, but was outstanding this year. I love the sculpted look of the bloom, & the color is really nice. It had lots of buds, the blooms mostly opened perfectly. I did notice that the buds are very close together, some of the blooms distorted because a bud or another bloom was too close. I do it were just a tad taller, I didn't measure but pretty sure mine was only about 24" tall or a bit more maybe. It was an odd year here though, I know lots of people talked about daylilies being short this year. I didn't notice it much to my established plants, but this one could be one of those affected. I have it planted in the middle of a bed, I may give it til next year to make sure this will be its height in my garden & move it closer to the edge of the bed. No rebloom, but it did bloom for such a long time.

Updat: this daylily seems to be struggling. Maybe I need to avoid evergreen daylilies. It has decreased to 1 fan. It bloomed well in 2018, but even our mild winter (but very wet) seemed to do it in. If it survives the summer I may move it to a more protected area

I got this plant back on May 2018, started with 5 fans. It is now also only one fan. It appears to be lacking vigor and be slow to multiply even here.
