Purchased this one in July, brought it home in September from one of the few daylily gardens in the area. It settled in okay and I'm awaiting spring!

The photo was taken about 10 minutes ago (been really dry here, need to water today)

Sweet Child did very well for me the first few years I grew it, and it clumped up quickly. I just moved it to a sunnier location since the past three years it was growing in shade. As a hybridizing plant, it was never able to keep a pod on until maturity, but the pollen was potent.
