A really nice one for front of the border, it blooms & reblooms & reblooms. This year it bloomed starting May 15 and continued non stop til July 9, a very full rebloom, not just a few scapes. Normally it reblooms again about this time, but haven't seen any scapes yet. Could be because it really needs to be divided. It multiplies really fast and can keep you busy dividing it.

Great front of the border daylily each scape has low bud count, but it puts out lots and lots of scapes so you don't really notice the bud count. This one increased from two fans to a very nice sized clump, really like the energizer bunny of daylilies.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!

Stella's Ruffled Fingers is in its first season here. It has lived up to its billing of being an excellent rebloomer. Stella started out in a pot in a very sunny spot and quickly proceeded to start putting on a bloom show with at least 13 scapes. When that was done, it put up another 11 or 12 scapes rather quickly. After that bloom, it began to slow done a little, and we began to believe that the heat might be affecting it in that pot. It did more nice blooms, just not as many and smaller blooms, so Stella was moved to a place where it was receiving some shade. It has put up scapes on and off, usually three or four at a time, and now in September, it seems to be done, maybe. I say maybe because we have now planted it in the garden in what we hope will be its permanent home. Who knows, it just might start up again with blooms.
