Handwriting on the Wall was one of my first Emmerich daylilies. It's only my second year but so far the colors are getting better with each bloom. The scapes are strong and I'm really liking this one. The bloom is stunning.

HANDWRITING ON THE WALL does well in my Zone 5 garden. Bud count is typically 12, but this is most likely related to its location. It is in a more shaded part of the garden. I have not used its pollen or tried to set a pod.
