A favorite! Nicely budded and a rich color. I was startled when I first saw it. Blooms closer to late midseason here. Deserves wider growth in the North.

DAWN OF AQUARIUS is a unique soft violet with a silvery blue watermark with a narrow edge that is very unusual and pretty. Flowers always open perfectly on well branched scapes with at least 4 way branching and it reblooms here in zone 7. Flawless foliage.....highly recommended, especially for the mid to late season! It clumps rapidly.

Dawn of Aquarius has been in my garden for a long time, it does very well here in zone 4 although it doesn't rebloom this far north. I agree with the previous posters this daylily is an outstanding keeper with beautiful blooms.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!
