I purchased this at the Madison Area Daylily sale in August of 2016. Early this June it gave us some beautiful blooms and it has looked healthy all summer. I'm sure looking forward to its performance next summer.

I got this from @Deryll last fall and enjoyed its first bloom season this spring. Very pretty pink, nice ruffled edge, good form. I'm m not usually a pink kinda person, but I do like this daylily : )

It has already gone dormant for the year (after 3 or 4 hard frosts)

Michigan Magic is one of my absolute favorite Diploids for flower size and deep vivid pink color. It is a dependable bloomer
and it increases very quickly. As this one is a hard dormant, I have used it for years for hybridizing with evergreen plants.
This one doesn't quite reach the stats quoted in it's registration here in my garden because I don't normally fertilize or give
them any special care. It will reach 28 inches, with normally 24 buds and 3 to 4 branches. It is nicely pod fertile.

Diana, glad to know it grew well for you this year! Next year it should be awesome for you.
