This plant came to me late last summer as a bonus plant on an order I had put in at Oakes Daylilies. Have not had it long enough to give any kind of report yet.

I received this plant by mistake in fall of 2020. Had 3 fans when I planted it. First bloom was June 8 2021. It had increased to 9 fans in the fall of 2021. Still 9 fans in spring of 2022. But this spring it only had 5. Sorry, I can't remember too much more about it. Will watch it a little closer this year.

I grew Mariska for many years. It always had at least two branches and the bud count was in the 10-12 range. It was a reliable performer. It left the garden because I found others to be better performers and my tastes changed. There are also many out there that are similar and better and are children of Mariska.
