I bought one Black Eye plant from Stauffers of Kissel Hill, a local garden center that used to grow a huge repetoire of daylilies because one of the owners loved them. After that owner retired, all the home-grown daylilies were sold, and that was the beginning of my daylily collection.

Black Eye is a favorite of mine because I love its flowers. My photos have not gotten their lovely contrasting colors quite right, although I have tried on both cloudy and sunny days. I began dividing the original clump in 2015, so the daughter clumps are still small. Black Eye doesn't bloom very long; bud count and branching are not especially impressive. But I keep it anyway for the sake of its lovely flowers, and I think it would work well it in more places in my gardens.
