I purchased two double fans of August Flame from a northern daylily grower in September, 2016. They were very small plants compared to the many daylilies I purchased from a Virginia grower at the same time. In spring, 2017, the two original double fans of August Flame produced a total of only one scape, whereas all of the original double fans from the Virginia grower produced at least two scapes each.

I was disappointed that only one scape of Autumn Flame developed, but I am unsure whether the source of the problem is (a) northern-grown daylilies in general (b) the particular northern grower that supplied my plants or (c) the cultivar. I chose this cultivar to build a repertoire of very-late-blooming daylilies.

August Flame has been here since I expanded the garden in 2011. I got several fans that I divided into two and planted in two separate location. It has increased well to the point where I need to divide them. Both clumps were loaded with blooms in 2017 and prior years. Extremely fertile. Starts blooming late July in my
Z:5 garden into September.

I purchased a potted up August Flame in 2010 at a landscape center and it has multiplied very well. I should have divided it two years ago actually. It blooms from mid-July to just about mid-August in my zone 6b garden.

Bud count maybe 12 and two-way branching, but it has a lot of scapes. Unfortunately, by the time August arrives, the leaves are looking ratty. But I am glad just to have something blooming then.

My clump of August Flame gets afternoon shade.
