I have not had this plant for long, just since April 17th 2016. The plant established itself quickly and bloomed for me in April 2017. I did get some stats on this plant last year. It was 29 inches tall with six inch blooms, it had four way branching and 21-25 buds. I have been well pleased with the stats , performance and the appearance of this plant.

Sherry Lane Carr has been in my garden a long time, it is very hardy, increases nicely and blooms well every year with very attractive blooms. I really love this daylily since it first started blooming it is excellent for northern gardens.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

It is so reliable and so vigorous that it is taken for granted. Nicely ruffled. Perhaps some find the color uninspiring. Bud count is okay here, but I have never had the bud count some have south of here.

Blooms exceptionally well here. Lots of day lilies have a similar look, but this one really performs so well, it can't be overlooked

Sherry Lane Carr does well here despite sitting under the canopy of a Rose Of Sharon shrub. For a evergreen it performs well here in the north.

Sherry Lane Carr is just a workhorse here even in our summer heat. It does loose some of it's color if placed in all day sun, but its form and substance remain stable.
Has a long bloom time and once in a while will repeat for me. It would be almost perfect if it kept its color, but for more northern growers that may not be an issue..........Maryl

Sherry Lane Carr has been in my garden for many years. It is a rather tailored and consistent bloom. It increases well and averages 18 buds per scape in my garden. It is pod and pollen fertile. It does not seem to be affected by dividing. This one will always have a spot in my garden.
