Jambalaya stilled bloomed a lot in 2016 despite loosing thirteen scapes to the browsing deer. Twenty seventeen was another great year. This is a great long blooming plant in my garden.

Jambalaya is a trooper. I have it planted in a raised bed far too close to other daylilies. Yet is always blooms. Not well, but it never fails (unlike several others in the same bed). The last two years the bed was invaded by a fast-growing weed. I had to remove all the daylilies to be able to dig the weed out. I replanted them all with slightly better spacing. I'm hoping I did this early enough in the season so that it will bloom in 2018.

I love the big, bold blooms. It may not be the fanciest bloom but I'd surely miss it if it didn't bloom. While it is pod fertile I do wish it was a little less finicky about which pollen it takes. It is a much better pollen donor .
